This help screen and other help screens include within the individual schedules include the instructions and other data needed to complete the ST-3 Supplemental Schedules SS-20 through SS-27. These schedules are used by the Rate Setting Unit (RSU) to determine tuition rates for programs operated by Special Act School Districts for students with disabilities under Articles 81 and 89 of the Education Law. Special Act school districts who received 2014-15 tuition rates from RSU for special education programs must complete these schedules. They will be used to determine the Special Act's tuition rates based on the 2015-16 financial data.
If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact the Rate Setting Unit at (518) 474-3227.
A general description of the four digit program codes assigned by RSU to each program is provided below. Complete a separate cost column on the SS-20 through SS-27 for each program code provided. If you have any questions regarding these codes, or what program they represent, please contact RSU before you complete these forms. Improper use and placement of the program codes may cause your tuition rate(s) to be delayed.
Cost data for Supplemental Schedules SS-20 through SS-27 must be completed for each of the following types of programs that your school district operates. Please note that each of the following are considered separate programs and each should be reported on a separate page.
If more than one approved program exists for school age special education programs a separate SS-20 through SS-27 schedule must be completed for each approved program requiring a tuition rate from RSU. There are forms provided for the reporting of up to three separate programs' data.
Each page represents a program and the order of reporting must be consistent across all reporting schedules. For example, if the first page on the SS-20 represents a school age special education program, the first page on each consecutive schedule should represent the same school age special education program.
Where indicated on a schedule, the program expenditures being reported should be identified with a brief program name.
Report all dollar amounts as whole numbers on all schedules.
