School districts across the state received high-cost special education aid payments earlier this month to reimburse a portion of the costs associated with the education of children whose educational needs exceed $30,000 per student.

The aid paid to 138 school districts, two cooperative educational service agencies, and three county children with disabilities education boards totaled $5,732,590 and covered just 46.2 percent of eligible costs for 1,052 students.

High-cost special education aid this year is made up of $3.5 million in state funding and $2.2 million in federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) discretionary funds that State Superintendent Tony Evers allocated to this purpose.

Area school districts who received such funding included Antigo with $10,047, Minocqua J1 School District at $27,305, and the Three Lakes School District who was paid $11,449.
