(HT) Funding Formula BAD HB 59 8-12-13-a

Preschool Special Education

Not part of the formula… • Previous law: • Preschool education for students with disabilities funded on a unit (per class) basis • no state share index multiplier, but approximately one-third of all units previously operated had no state funding. (Serving these students is required by federal law.) • New formula: ($4,000 X number of preschool students with disabilities) +

(number of students in each category X weighted amount for that category** X state share index X 0.5)

**Same as for school aged Special Education students
