2015-16 Ten-Month Public Placements:
This is a reminder to submit any outstanding STAC forms to SED for students with disabilities educated in the 2015-16 school year, as it is still possible to claim 2016-17 Public High Cost and Private Excess Cost Aid for eligible students. However, any additional aid due for 2016-17 will be paid as a Prior Year Adjustment. Thus, the actual receipt of this aid will be delayed for several years. Failure to complete the entire STAC process for students served in the 2015-16 school year by 6/30/2018 will result in the loss of 2016-17 aid for those students. Please access the DQAPP screen in the STAC On-Line System to view records already entered for the 2015-16 school year.
