Subject: Part B Application

Source: Pam Williams, Coordinator, Special Education Services

Intended Audience: System stakeholders in Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)

Date: February 19, 2008

On February 4, 2008, the Division of Special Education made available for public review and comment the application packet for federal funds under Part B of IDEA.  The draft application packet for IDEA Part B funds is available for review and comment at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Compliance/Part%20B/index.html.  

At the time of posting the application the dollar amounts listed in Section III, Use of Funds, were based upon current year (FFY07) estimated expenditures because the federal budget was not finalized, thus preventing the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) from giving states their FFY08 budget allocations. 

We have received our FFY08 allocation tables from OSEP and have updated the application form posted on the web with the current figures.

As you review the application, please take note of the following:

* The application is in a format required by OSEP.

* The costs included in this application only reflect the Part B portion of federal IDEA funds that are allocated to the state of Missouri and not the total cost of special education services.

This application is available for review on the Division's website for sixty (60) days, until April 4, 2008.  Individuals desiring to submit written comments on the application may do so from February 18 through March 18, 2008.  Comments should be sent to the attention of Pam Williams, Coordinator, Special Education Services, at webreplyspe@dese.mo.gov or P.O. Box 480, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0480 or by fax 573-526-4404.
