Allocation Formula Costs of placements and services for single students in excess of the applicable threshold amount will be eligible for reimbursement. The threshold amount for the 2012−13 fiscal year for necessary small SELPAs is the lesser of $73,239.08 or one percent of the SELPA’s subtotal apportionment (sum of the base, supplement to base, COLA, and growth). Single placement costs applied towards the threshold for reimbursements from the extraordinary cost pool for nonpublic schools and licensed children’s institutions will also be applied to this threshold. If the total reimbursable amount exceeds the $3 million appropriation, funds will be used to first reimburse residential costs and claims for other mental health related costs will be prorated. If claims for residential costs exceed the $3 million appropriation, claims for residential costs will be prorated and remaining claims will not be reimbursed.
