Expenditures for Parentally-Placed Private School Children


(1)

Formulas for determining funds available for provision of special education and related services to private school children with disabilities:

(a)

For school-age children: Each school district must spend an amount that is the same proportion of the school district’s total subgrant of IDEA funds as the number of school-age private school children with disabilities who are enrolled by their parents in private schools located within the boundaries of the school district is to the total number of school-age children with disabilities in its jurisdiction.

(b)

For private school children with disabilities aged 3 up to school-age, the EI/ECSE contractor must spend:

(A)

An amount that is the same proportion of the contractor’s total IDEA fund subgrant under section 611(f) for ECSE children as the number of ECSE private school children with disabilities who are enrolled by their parents in private schools located within the boundaries of the ECSE service area is to the total number of ECSE children with disabilities in the service area; and

(B)

An amount that is the same proportion of the contractor’s total IDEA fund subgrant under section 619(g) as the number of ECSE private school children with disabilities who are enrolled by their parents in private schools located within the boundaries of the ECSE service area is to the total number of ECSE children with disabilities in the service area.

(2)

If a public agency has not expended for equitable services all of the proportionate funds designated for that purpose by the end of the fiscal year the IDEA funds were appropriated, the public agency must obligate the remaining funds for special education and related services to parentally-placed private school children with disabilities for a carry-over period of one additional year.

(3)

Expenditures for child find activities described in OAR 581-015-2085 (Child Find for Children Attending Private Schools) may not be considered in determining whether the public agency has met the requirements of section (1).

(4)

A public agency is neither required to or prohibited from providing services to private school children with disabilities in excess of those required by this part, consistent with State law or local policy. State and local funds must not supplant the proportionate amount of federal funds required to be expended under subsection (1).

(5)

The cost of the transportation described in OAR 581-015-2460 (Services Plan)(4)(b) may be included in calculating whether the public agency has met the requirement of section (1) of this rule.
