TITLE VI B FUNDS FOR DISABLED CHILDREN
Title VI B Funds are federal monies granted under the provisions of Public Law 94-142 which "flow-through" the state to local school districts. These funds are generated based on a child count of all identified disabled students in the district taken on December 1 of each year. By law, Title VI B funds must be used to extend programs and services to students with disabilities. These monies cannot supplant local funds. In JM, the money is used to provide services and purchase equipment and materials. Public comment is solicited on the budgeting and use of these funds. Contact the board office with suggestions.
SPECIAL EDUCATION CHILD-SEARCH
In accordance with Public Law 93-380, all school districts must conduct annual search for children who have limited physical, emotional, visual hearing, speech or learning disabilities that would make it difficult for them to learn in a regular classroom. If you know of such a child not currently attending school, please contact the building principals.
