Contingency Funds provide funding for the implementation of the Individualized Education Program for a student with significant disabilities and extraordinary expenses. PDE has announced that it will begin accepting applications for the Special Education Contingency Funds for Extraordinary Expenses on November 18, 2019. Interested local educational agencies (LEAs) will have until January 3, 2020 to submit applications.
The application and review process for the 2019-2020 school year is specified in the Contingency Funds Guidelines. Applications for the Special Education Contingency Funds should be submitted electronically through the contingency funds request system website at https://apps.leaderservices.com/cfunds. LEAs that have not previously used the system may request a password from Leader Services by emailing email@example.com. The LEA’s address will be verified, and a password will be issued, along with the information regarding the primary account.
Questions regarding Special Education Contingency Funds for Extraordinary Expenses should be directed to Dr. Del Hart, Chief, Division of Analysis and Financial Reporting, at 717.772.1114 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
