New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Research, Planning, and Evaluation.
Chapter 241 of the Laws of 1974 provides for aid to elementary and secondary education for 1974-75. This legislation contains departures from previous aid legislation. New criteria are introduced for calculating the "total aidable pupil units" which a district can claim. The new criteria are considerec to reflect an effort to provide additional funds to school districts more equitably on the basis of specific pupil educational needs. Districts which receive aid for pupils with special education needs, with handicapping conditions, with severely handicapping conditions or in occupational education programs are required to prepare plans anc submit annual reports to the State Education Department. The materials included in this document have been developed to assist district officials to understand and to carry out these new responsibilities, as follows: (1) general background information on Chapter 241; (2) specific planning, evaluation, and reporting instructions; (3) definitions which will enable district officials to identify pupils with special education needs and pupils with handicapping conditions, and definitions which will be applicable to occupational education: and, (4) the names and phone numbers of State Education Department officials to call for answers to questions about any facet of the special weighting provision.
