Intended Audience: Superintendents, Special Education Directors, Finance Administrators

Date: May 28, 2013

The Division has received the Part B IDEA allocation amounts for 2013-2014.  District allocations for FY14 Part B special education funds may be found at: http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/partbentitlement.html.   The allocations are based on district submitted data as of April 21, 2013.  As expected, allocations to districts were reduced by 5.21% due to sequestration and other budgetary measures.  If the district had changes in population and/or free and reduced lunch counts from one year to the next, then the reduction may be more than 5.21%.

New charter schools will show a zero allocation until the Special Education Finance Section calculates estimated allocations in November 2013.  Existing charter schools with significant expansion will have their FY14 Part B IDEA allocations recalculated in November 2013 as well.  A separate SELs message will be sent as soon as the FY14 Part B Budget Application is open and ready for data entry.

Please contact the Special Education Finance Section with any questions at (573) 751-0622 or spedfunding@dese.mo.gov.
