Setting Funding for Special Ed Preschools

In Pennsylvania, most students who attend preschool do so at their parents' expense, since there is no public preschool in Pennsylvania.
However, for students who receive special education services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Pennsylvania's Early Intervention Services System Act, some of these students have their preschool placement funded by the agency that provides their special education services, typically the county intermediate unit, while others do not. Because Pennsylvania law is inconsistent and unclear on this issue, it is time for the Legislature to provide clear guidance both in the statute and in funding.
