2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill authorizes an adjustment to the school district tax levy cap for the amount of the increase in special education costs over $40,000 per pupil that exceeds the amount of such costs in the prior school year by more than 2%. Under both federal and State law, a school district is required to provide a special education student with the educational programs and services necessary to address his educational disabilities. The programs and services must be in conformance with the student's Individualized Education Program and must be provided regardless of the cost to the district. This bill provides an adjustment in the case of those special education students whose educational program represents a significant cost to the district. If the district had to accommodate these significant costs within the base 2% cap it would have a detrimental effect on the district's ability to provide appropriate educational services to other students enrolled in the district.
