Berrien RESA Refunding Special Education Surplus To Districts



Area school districts are getting a refund from the Berrien Regional Education Service Agency. Berrien RESA will return just over $2.5 million to the districts in reimbursement for special education over the course of the school year.

Listen:



That's Berrien RESA Superintendent Kevin Ivers, who says they've been able to refund the money in all but one school year since 2004. The dollars are determined by a county-wide reimbursement formula from the special ed budget. This year's surplus comes from a pair of sources. They are Fund Equity and Act 18 dollars, which are levied through a county Special Education millage. Ivers says the money will help offset the costs incurred by districts for providing special education programs and services.
