Tuition Rate Reform

September 15, 2023

The New York State Education Department is conducting a comprehensive study of alternative tuition rate-setting methodologies for approved providers operating school-age and preschool special education programs in New York State.  Tuition rate-setting methodology is used to reimburse school-age day and residential special class programs (operated by approved private schools and special act school districts), extended school year special class programs, and preschool special class and special class in an integrated setting programs.   The study will consider alternative approaches to reimbursement to ensure students with disabilities receive education and related services in accordance with their individualized education programs.
