20% off data purges

Do you have years and years and years of data in your live directory? Have you noticed reports and queries taking too long to run?  It may be time to purge older data into a historical directory. You can keep any number of years as a backup in your live directory (we usually recommend the current fiscal year plus the two previous years) and then put all that history in a separate data space.

Your history will still be right at your fingertips, stored on your cloud server and available through your own unique url. This is one of our best year-end clean-up services! Prices vary based on data size, but we’ll take 20% off large or small! 

15% off new digitized signature setups

Tired of hand signing checks or POs?  We can automate the signature process for up to three signature lines on checks and one signature on P.O’s. Set up signatures for the new year to save 15%, and you will no longer have checks or P.O.s lying around waiting on signatures!

15% off the AESOP Vacancy Add on Feature 

Do you have an abundance of substitutes without the occurrence of an absent employee?  We have an add on feature that will save you the time and effort you spend doing data entry to account for these situations.  Normally $1000, this add on is on sale for $850 for proposals signed by July 15th. 

And don’t forget some of our other services that are helpful at year end:

Account Code Changes and Conversions: need help with ESSA reporting?

Frontline Absence and Time Integrations: why manually enter leave, sub and time transactions when you can import directly from Frontline into OpenRDA.

Leave Liability Reporting: we can create a custom report to calculate your annual liability.

Contact Mimi English to sign-up before July 15, 2019.

Year End Leave Services

Leave Liability

Do the very words make you shutter? This can be a very tedious and time-consuming task. We also know it has an enormous impact on your planning and budget processes for the future. That’s why RDA is offering a service to calculate this on your behalf. RDA will customize your Leave Liability reporting to meet your individual needs. With our help, you’ll no longer have to maintain a separate spreadsheet to produce leave liability information to your auditors. RDA has the experience to customize reports based on your individual Leave formulas allowing you to easily and quickly provide accurate information to your auditors!

Whether we have helped you in the past with calculations or guidance or if you are new to the process, it would be our pleasure to provide this service to you this year. If there have been no changes to your leave policies, you also have the option of running the processes on your own this year.

Leave Tables

If you have the Leave Management module, then in a few short weeks, you will be moving your employees’ leave balances to the new fiscal year. We want to make that task easier, and also allow your leave processing to be streamlined for the future. With this goal and timing in mind, we want to get the word out about a useful feature in our software, Leave Tables .

Leave Tables must be set up BEFORE you use the Move Leave Balances process. This is a good time to review your Leave IDs and determine which of the same type may be able to be combined and set up a table that would determine employees’ earnings based on their employment tenure. Once tables have been set up, you can use the Move Leave Balance process to move balances into the new year, and at the same time, into the unified Leave ID.

These are very time-sensitive tasks requiring advance preparation and coordination. RDA will need to receive a copy of your data in order to perform the liability calculations. Please contact us as soon as possible so we can serve your needs efficiently. To reserve your spot, we will need to know as soon as possible if you would like to take advantage of these affordable services.

Please email Mimi English ( as to reserve your spot, and she will be happy to send you a proposal.

It is our hope that you find value in these recommendations and instructions. If you have questions regarding fiscal year end, please submit a cyber support request.

Resurrection Day

Resurrection Day

Celebrate the Good News.

RDA will be closed this Friday in observance of Good Friday and in celebration of Resurrection Day.

Christ was crucified on Good Friday. Three days later He rose from the dead to join God in heaven. Christ defeated death. There is no resurrection apart from Christ, and there is no eternal life apart from Christ. Through His death and resurrection God’s people are given eternal life. Hallelujah!! Let’s rejoice and celebrate this Good News!

He is Risen!

Outside Bethany, Lazarus’s sister Martha went out to meet Jesus. In John 11:25-26, Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.  Do you believe this?”

Download for Free! Important Questions You Should Ask this K-12 Budget Season

  • Think about your goals. Are there any new budget items that need to be included? Are there any new mandates required by law? Can some budget items be eliminated?
  • Determine how your income may change. Will your tax rate change? Has your population changed? Are there any new taxes? Will any tax expire?
  • Decide between needs and wants. Do you need to purchase new equipment because the old is outdated or ineffective? Will a new purchase ease or alleviate a cost or burden?
  • Be detailed with your biggest expenses. If salary is your largest expense, show the salary/ employer paid taxes and deductions increase per person, not as a lump percentage increase. The amounts budgeted with a percent increase could be off by thousands.
  • Be realistic with your estimates. If you really don’t expect revenue to increase, don’t put an increase in your budget. If you are unable to pay for the expenses in your budget, cut some items, no matter how painful.
  • Utilize the best tools available. Learn to use any budgeting tools provided in your financial and accounting software. Budget Preparation programs are a huge time saver. Rely on people in your organization with previous budgeting experience. Learn what you can about previous budget issues that you can avoid.
