Bill adjusting special education rebasing period passed

A bill rebasing special education funding flew through the final steps in the legislative process.


House Bill 1001, which requires the recalculation of the special education disability levels’ amount allocation to take place every two years, passed Senate Education on a 7-0 vote and the full Senate on a 33-0 vote.


ASBSD supports the bill, which now heads to Gov. Kristi Noem for review and signature.


The bill amends the current practice of recalculating the allocations based on disability levels every three years to every two years.


“By the third year, the (special education) costs are actually getting ahead of our rebasing,” Sen. Reynold Nesiba said, adding that the bill would “give (the legislature) a more accurate picture of what our actual costs are.”
