BILL NUMBER:S930

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to including special education
expenditures in the regents' annual report to the governor and the
legislature

PURPOSE:
This legislation requires a statement setting forth the total
expenditures made by each school district in the regents' annual
report to the governor and the legislature.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 215-a of the education law is amended
by adding a new subdivision 3 to require a statement setting forth
the total expenditures made by each school district in the regents
annual report to the governor and the legislature.

JUSTIFICATION:
School districts continue to struggle with the costs
associated with education special education students. Some districts
have claimed that their special education costs exceed 20% of their
total budget.

Under current law, there is no requirement for the school districts to
compile their actual special education costs not covered by State or
Federal aid. This legislation would require such information to be
collected and would provide valuable insight into the costs of
special education in New York State. Once compiled, the State would
have a better understanding of the impact of special education costs
on local school district budgets and the effect on the taxpayer.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.6938 of 2008 (Passed Senate)
S.589 of 2009/10 (Senate Higher Education Committee)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
