Question of the Week

How does School Healthcare work?

Act 11 - Health Care Coverage
Passed in 2018, Act 11 created the Commission on Public School Employee Health Benefits.
 
In the past, school districts negotiated health care cost-sharing and criteria through local collective bargaining.
 
The commission determines the cost of health care premiums, out-of-pocket expenses, eligibility criteria, full-time employment status, and Tiers of Coverage.
Question of the Week

How does the change in Special Education Funding impact the MTSD Budget?

A component of ACT 173 passed in 2018 (and then delayed due to Covid 19) is a change in the special education funding.

Previously, districts were reimbursed for the costs of services for each students' Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The reimbursement came in the form of revenue.

The new census block grant model means that each district receives a specified dollar amount for each student in the district with an IEP. This dollar amount is the same for every student regardless of the cost of the services required.
