The Division has received the estimated 2012-2013 (FY13) Part B IDEA allocation amounts and has posted estimated LEA FY13 Part B IDEA allocations at  The estimated allocations are based on preliminary data as of March 20, 2012, and have been calculated on full funding and with a reduction of 4.5% in anticipation of Sequestration.  While LEAs will have access to full funding at the beginning of 2012-13, they should be aware that a 4.5% cut may occur during the 2012-13 year in the event Sequestration is enacted.  Please see the administrative memo (FAS-12-005) at

New charter schools will show a zero FY13 Part B IDEA allocation until the Special Education Finance Section calculates those allocations in February 2013.  Existing charter schools with significant expansion will have their FY13 Part B IDEA allocations recalculated in February 2013.

Any corrections to Enrollment, Home School, or Federal Free and Reduced Lunch count data must be made in the system in which they were reported no later than midnight May 31, 2012.  Changes made on or after June 1, 2012, will not be included in the final FY13 Part B IDEA allocation calculation.  Final 2012-13 Part B IDEA allocations will be posted at after June 4, 2012, showing the full funding amount and the amount with a reduction of 4.5%.
