  • One at One: Additional Services for Students with Disabilities

Today’s Issue:

Are funds available to cover the cost of additional services provided to student with disabilities who graduate or “age out”?

Answer:

Yes. School districts may submit an amendment to their 2019-2020 IDEA grant application – by June 30, 2020 – for the costs of providing additional services to students with disabilities. Districts may also use the CARES Act funds to cover the costs of providing additional services and may contract with NJDOE-approved agencies or other appropriate entities to complete evaluations, transition services, or other additional services based on the student’s need.
