The Public Placement Fund application is due October 31, 2012, for services provided during the 2011-12 school year.  The application and manual are posted on the Special Education Finance webpage at http://www.dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/PPFindex.html.  Applications and supporting cost documentation must be submitted electronically to spedfunding@dese.mo.gov by October 31, 2012, to be eligible for reimbursement.

The Public Placement Fund provides reimbursement for districts educating non-domicile students, both IEP and non-IEP, placed within the 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.
