The Special Education Finance Section has recently posted the updated Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Expenditure Guide at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/documents/sef-ECSEmanual.pdf. This manual provides guidance on the fiscal rules for operating an ECSE program, explains the cost-savings measures the Division has taken to help control the increasing cost of the ECSE program, and includes step-by-step instructions on how to complete and amend the ECSE Expenditure Report (ER). Please note that this guide does not contain new programmatic changes; it only reinforces what has already been implemented/established.
A webinar on the ECSE Expenditure Guide will be conducted Wednesday, February 23, 2011, from 9:30-10:30 a.m. This presentation will highlight important information provided in the updated ECSE Expenditure Guide, including other technical assistance documents. More information on the webinar can be found at http://dese.mo.gov/Webinar02-23-11FAS.htm. Special Education Directors, Early Childhood Special Education Staff, and Financial Administrators may be interested in viewing this webinar.
