Subject: Revised Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Capital Cost Purchase Agreement - Now Posted

Source: Special Education Finance

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

Date: September 2, 2011

The Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Capital Cost Purchase Agreement worksheet is used by the Division of Financial and Administrative Services in determining an appropriate amount of reimbursement for ECSE Capital Costs.  Capital Costs include the purchase of copiers, buses, new facilities, mobile units, and facility construction/renovation.  The worksheet has recently been revised to allow a separate section for facility renovation and provide space for districts/LEAs to describe the project/purchase more thoroughly for accountability and transparency purposes.  The ECSE Capital Cost Purchase Agreement worksheet is located at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/ecseindex.html under the ECSE Forms section.

Prior to submission for final approval, please email the completed form to spedfunding@dese.mo.gov for an initial review to ensure accuracy in completing the form.  Once Division staff have initially reviewed, the form will be returned to the district to be printed, signed, and mailed with the supporting documentation to: DESE, Attn: Division of Financial and Administrative Services, Special Education Finance, PO Box 480, Jefferson City, MO 65102.  Once a final review has been completed and approved, the district will receive a fully executed agreement.

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