Subject: Updated Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Expenditure Guide - Now Posted

Source: Special Education Finance

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, Superintendents, Financial Administrators, ECSE Coordinators

Date: April 6, 2011

Due to questions that arose after the Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) webinar on February 23, the ECSE Expenditure Guide has been updated and reposted.  The updated guide provides further clarification on topics such as caseloads, coding of ECSE personnel, ECSE Cooperatives, tuition, and integrated classrooms.  The ECSE Expenditure Guide is posted at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/documents/sef-ECSEmanual.pdf.  The Department will continue to post updates/revisions as clarification is needed and districts will be notified of these updates.

Remember, the Department has not made any programmatic changes with this guide; we have only clarified the funding rules related to ECSE reimbursement. There will be no exceptions outside of this guide after the end of this year, so please plan accordingly.

Any questions may be directed to the Special Education Finance Section at (573) 751-0622 or by email at spedfunding@dese.mo.gov.
