Subject: FY13 Public Placement Fund Application Now Available

Source: Special Education Finance

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, District Administrators

Date: September 20, 2012

The FY13 Public Placement Fund (PPF) manual and application have been posted on the Special Education Finance webpage at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/PPFindex.html.  The PPF provides reimbursement for educating both IEP and non-IEP students placed within a non-domicile district by the Division of Family Services (DFS)/Children's Division (CD), the Department of Mental Health (DMH), the Division of Youth Services (DYS), or a Court of Competent Jurisdiction.  Funding is available when the educational costs of these students exceed the revenues received by the serving district.  This is an OPTIONAL application.

Applications for the FY13 year have been modified to auto fill most data based on the county district code selected; however, districts must still enter student information and applicable costs.  Applications and supporting cost documentation for service provided during the 2011-12 school year must be submitted electronically via email as an attachment to spedfunding@dese.mo.gov by October 31, 2012, to be eligible for reimbursement.  Districts will be sent a receipt confirmation.  Please keep this email for your records. 

Please note that students should NOT be claimed on the both the High Need Fund (HNF) and Public Placement Fund applications.  

If you have any questions, please contact the Special Education Finance Section at (573) 751-0622 or by email at spedfunding@dese.mo.gov.
