ALERT IDEA Final Reports & NCLB Final Expenditure Reports 1/27/12 Please be advised that in the reconciliation of the January 2012 IDEA and NCLB entitlement payments to districts, an error occurred in the exchange of information from the New Jersey Department of the Treasury fiscal system to the EWEG payment system.
