Source: Shelley Witherbee, Supervisor, Funds Management

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, District Administrators

Date: August 31, 2007

The Excess Cost for Public Placement Fund (PPF) is for districts who are serving non-domicile students, both IEP and non-IEP, placed within their district by Children's Services (CD)/Division of Family Services (DFS), the Department of Mental Health (DMH), Division of Youth Services (DYS), or a court of competent jurisdiction. The application, instructions, and manual for the PPF may be accessed at http://www.dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/PPFindex.html.

The application should reflect expenditures for services provided during the 2006-07 school year. Please note that the application has a couple of changes this year. The Basic State Aid revenue is calculated differently based on the changes to the foundation formula, and Exceptional Pupil Aid revenue has been eliminated.

After completing the application electronically, print, sign, and mail a printed copy, along with all supporting documentation, to DESE, Special Education Funds Management, P. O. Box 480, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0480. The application must be postmarked by October 15, 2007 - extensions will not be granted.

The Division anticipates paying the Public Placement Fund at a 100% reimbursement rate after revenues are deducted.

If you have any questions regarding this fund, please contact Shelley Witherbee at 573-522-2523 or shelley.witherbee@dese.mo.gov.
