IDOE will be unable to submit new requests for SEEC funding contracts between Monday, April 3, and the start of the 2024 fiscal year on Friday, June 30. Local educational agencies (LEAs) can still submit applications for review and if approved, will receive an email notifying them of the approved dates and budget that will be in the contract. No new requests for contracts will be processed until after Friday, July 1. LEAs should continue to pay all vendor invoices. Expenses will be reimbursed in accordance with the approved contract following execution. LEAs will be notified of contract execution and may then submit invoices for reimbursement. Specific guidance for the 2023-2024 school year is forthcoming. Contact IDOE’s Office of Special Education with any questions.
