Description

This report discusses Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which assists participating states to serve school-age children with disabilities. The
state funding formula, which provides a foundation amount based on states’ FY1999
grants and allocates remaining amounts based on states’ shares of school-age children
and of school-age poor children, authorizes a maximum allotment per disabled child
served of 40% of the national average per pupil expenditure (APPE). Annual
appropriations have never been sufficient to provide each state its maximum allotment;
in FY2002, states will receive approximately 16.5% of the national APPE per disabled
child served. Some advocates for the program have called upon the Congress to fully
fund the formula. An estimated $18.2 billion would be required to provide states the
maximum allotment allowed per disabled child served in FY2002, about 2.4 times more
than the appropriation of $7.5 billion for FY2002.
