Titled Independent School Revenue Recognition for Tuition and Fees Under FASB ASC 606, the white paper answers questions and addresses challenges specific to private schools. It uses two examples to illustrate how the FASB guidance would apply in different scenarios. The statement of financial position, statement of activities, and disclosures in the school financial statement are also discussed.
