The Special Education Circuit Breaker program includes a provision that allows districts to claim for extraordinary relief when claimable Special Education costs exceed 125% of the previous year's claimed costs. The purpose of this memorandum is to outline the extraordinary relief claim process for FY'14. Districts considering claiming for this fiscal year should send an email to circuitbreaker@doe.mass.edu expressing their intent to claim by Friday, February 28, 2014. After receiving this information we will create district specific claim files and make them available to school officials. These claim files will be in the same format as previous claims and will be due Monday, March 31, 2014.

In addition, we are working to set up a training schedule during March to assist districts intending to file. All districts filing claims for relief are expected to attend a training session. Please be advised that districts filing after March 31 are not guaranteed consideration for relief.

I appreciate your assistance in the implementation of the Circuit Breaker program.
