Dear Ms. Krause:

The Division of School Finance has received your request dated May 22, 2014 for the tuition billing system to include unreimbursed general education cost rates for Lionsgate Academy Charter School for State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2015. In accordance with Minnesota Statutes, section 125A.11, Subdivision 1, the request for additional revenue to cover the unreimbursed cost is approved.

An interim rate of $5.89 will be used for SFY 2015 which is 100 percent of the SFY 2014 interim appeal rate.

As additional enrollment data becomes available, the unreimbursed cost may change and the amount per membership hour will be adjusted accordingly.

If you have any questions, please direct them to Michelle Jones at 651-582-8577 or email


Previously signed

Dr. Brenda Cassellius
