|Allocation Formula||Costs for a single placement in excess of the applicable threshold amount will be eligible for reimbursement. The threshold amount for 2014-15 for SELPAs that are not considered necessary small SELPAs as defined in California Education Code Section 56836.21 is $75,017.54. This is equal to the 2013-14 threshold plus the 2014-15 cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) of 0.85%. The threshold amount for the 2014-15 fiscal year for necessary small SELPAs is the lesser of $75,017.54 or one percent of the SELPA’s subtotal apportionment (sum of the base, COLA, and growth). If the total reimbursable amount exceeds the current year appropriation, all claims will be prorated.
Note: In addition to the current year appropriation, any funds not used for Necessary Small SELPAs’ Extraordinary Cost Pool for Mental Health Services are made available for this program, if needed (refer to the Necessary Small SELPAs’ Extraordinary Cost Pool for Mental Health Services Funding Profile).
