Allocation Formula Costs for a single placement in excess of the applicable threshold amount will be eligible for reimbursement. The threshold amount for 2020-21 for SELPAs that are not considered necessary small SELPAs as defined in California Education Code Section 56836.21 is $81,627.73. This is equal to the 2019-20 threshold. There is no cost-of-living adjustment provided for 2020-21 fiscal year. The threshold amount for the 2020-21 fiscal year for necessary small SELPAs is the lesser of $81,627.73 or one percent of the SELPA's subtotal apportionment for 2019-20 fiscal year. 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 SELPA's Extraordinary Cost Pool for Mental Health Services are made available for this program, if needed.
