Proportionate share funds are the amount of IDEA Part B funds a district must spend on parentally-placed private and home school children with disabilities ages five (5) to twenty-one (21) who have been evaluated and determined eligible for special education and related services within the district boundaries.
To assist school districts with funding questions, we have recently posted a PowerPoint presentation and a Proportionate Share calculation spreadsheet located under the Special Education Finance header at: http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/IDEA-PPPSCD.html.
