Page 108, after line 5, insert:

"N. Any community policy management team receiving and disbursing funds under the Children's Services Act to pay for a student's placement in a private school, pursuant to an individualized education plan, serving students with disabilities, shall continue to pay a daily or monthly rate for the 2020-21 school year, but may adjust the rate to account for virtual or distance learning provided by a private school to a rate that is commensurate with the level of service being provided, as long as the student's placement is in a private school serving students with disabilities that is continuing to provide a free and appropriate public education and the private school is providing services to the student, including virtual."


(This amendment adds language requiring continued payment for services of private day schools provided to students with disabilities if such services are still required by the student's individualized education plans and the private school provides remote learning or telehealth services during the 2020-21 school year, however the rates may be adjusted commensurate with the level of services being provided. Item 292 will be set out upon enrolling of the budget bill.)
