Provides after June 30, 2024, no payments may be made by a school district for amounts in excess of $4,500 for children who have been placed in a program in which the actual per pupil costs of tuition for special education and related services based on program enrollment exceed $4,500. With regard to funding for children requiring special education services, provides that for individual students with disabilities whose program costs exceed 2 (rather than 4) times the district's per capita tuition rate, the costs in excess of 2 (rather than 4) times the district's per capita rate must be paid by the State Board of Education from funds made available under a provision in the Code regarding special education facilities (rather than from unexpended IDEA discretionary funds). With regard to the supervision of special education buildings and facilities, provides that beginning with Fiscal Year 2020 through Fiscal Year 2025, the State must fund all necessary expenses related to educating children with excess costs who attend certain public schools and for Fiscal Year 2026 and each fiscal year thereafter, all costs in excess of 2 times a district's per capita tuition charge for educating children who attend certain schools and programs must be reimbursed by the State.
