Act 16 – Reporting of Expenditures Relating to Exceptional Students

Act 16 of 2000 (24 PS §13-1372(8)) requires the Reporting of Expenditures Relating to Exceptional Students. School districts and charter schools must report the number of students with disabilities for which expenditures fall in one of five categories. The categories will be 1A, 1B, 2, 3A, and 3B for the 2021-2022 school year. The dollar amounts for these categories are as follows:

​Category
Dollar Amount
​1A 
​$1.00 - $4,999.99
​1B 
​$5,000 - $27,303.07

The PIMS manual for 2022-23 will also be updated to reflect the dollar amounts to be reported.
