The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004 granted states the flexibility to set aside a percent of the funds reserved for state-level activities to establish a funding mechanism that would reimburse local educational agencies (LEAs) for costs of high needs students with disabilities (34 § 300.704(c)). The out-of-state residential placement is Tier I of Oklahoma’s high needs fund. Tier 2 includes funding for all other high needs students with excessive costs to the LEA.
Per pupil expenditure for FY 2015 for the Tier II High Need Student Application is $8,633.16.00. The amount needed for a student to qualify is 3 X the average per pupil expenditure which totals $25,899.48 and the total cost of all high need students in the LEA must be at least ten percent (10%) of the LEA’s 2015-2016 IDEA Flow-Through allocation.
