The State of Illinois provides two state categorical pupil reimbursement fund sources for districts serving students with disabilities who require special education and related services. Such students may be eligible under:
- Private Facility 105 ILCS 5/14-7.02
- Orphanage 105 ILCS 5/14-7.03
State funding is appropriated by the General Assembly each fiscal year. Additionally, when necessary to provide an appropriate educational program, Federal Room and Board reimbursement per the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) may be available for school district placements. Depending on the eligibility of the student, reimbursement may be received in the current or the following fiscal year.
