The Division has received the Part B IDEA allocation amounts for 2013-2014. District allocations for FY14 Part B special education funds may be found at: http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/partbentitlement.html. The allocations are based on district submitted data as of April 21, 2013. As expected, allocations to districts were reduced by 5.21% due to sequestration and other budgetary measures. If the district had changes in population and/or free and reduced lunch counts from one year to the next, then the reduction may be more than 5.21%.
New charter schools will show a zero allocation until the Special Education Finance Section calculates estimated allocations in November 2013. Existing charter schools with significant expansion will have their FY14 Part B IDEA allocations recalculated in November 2013 as well. A separate SELs message will be sent as soon as the FY14 Part B Budget Application is open and ready for data entry.
