The State Board of Education is asked to approve the recommendation that for April 1, 2020 child count, a statistical formula will be used to project the normal increase from December 1 to April 1 child count, using the last five years of data.

Due to COVID-19, this will be an extra burden on local EC departments and teachers, and could impact their State Aid funding from the State.  This could include reduced funding due to IEP meetings not being held, or completion of initial referrals for special education, due to the Executive Order #120.
