Attached are instructions for claiming reimbursement for services provided by certain regional special education programs that have been approved by the state. Included with the instructions is a list providing the name of each regional program and school code number.

 

Reimbursement requests must be submitted via the Department of Education's Web-based SPEDSYS reporting system, and received no later than October 10, 2008.
