Section 4408 of Education Law requires that a student’s county of residence contribute 10% of the approved cost of July/August special education services provided to children with disabilities who are five through twenty-one years of age and eligible for such services pursuant to Articles 85, 87, 88, or 89 of the Education Law.

A report listing the 2021-22 STAC approval records for such services as of September 7, 2022 is now available via your county’s SED File Transfer Manager (FTM) outbasket:.

*Note: "CCCC" represents the first four letters of a county’s name, except for New York City (NEWY) and Saint Lawrence (STLA).

This report is provided to assist the county with projecting the amount of the 2021-22 chargeback that will be provided to counties through a similar “verified” chargeback report to be issued in March 2023. The “verified” chargeback report will reflect approved services rendered and will include multiple years, most of which has been previously collected.

The county chargeback will be accomplished by reducing the Section 4410 AVL reimbursement due your county for 2022-23 preschool services. We anticipate processing the county chargeback in Spring 2023 when State funds become available.

If you have questions regarding the 10% chargeback process or the students whose names appear on the enclosed chargeback report, please contact Nicholas.Thayer@nysed.gov.
