Dear Ms. Bullard:

Thank you for your letter of May 16, 2014 indicating that for State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2015 the students in Site 013 (STEP 18-21) should not be processed through the tuition billing system. According to your request, there is a combination of activities for these students including transition disabled and services provided by Wright Technical Center. Your request is approved because the tuition billing system would over-state the rates for special education and not invoice the districts appropriately for vocational-disabled services.

If you should have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Michelle Jones at 651-582-8577 or email to michelle.jones@state.mn.us.

Sincerely,

Previously signed

George Holt, Supervisor

Division of School Finance
