Child Count of Students with Disabilities
Each academic year, the Indiana Department of Education conducts two official counts of students with disabilities. These counts are of the number of students with disabilities who are eligible for special education services and are receiving those services on the day of the count. The first count, on December 1st of each year, is used to generate state funding for students with disabilities under IC 20-43-7-6. The second count, on April 1st of each year, is used for informational purposes. Both counts are certified by the Indiana State Board of Education under IC 20-43-4-4.

Tables of Annual Per Pupil Funding
Section 618 requires reporting data to the Secretary of Education and the public on the equity of services provided under IDEA for various subgroups. Required subgroups vary by data requested to be publicly reported, but among the subgroups are race, ethnicity, limited English proficiency status, gender, and disability category.
Statistics and Reports
Additional Pupil Count (APC) is calculated every year using data collected from school corporations through the DOE-SE (Special Education), DOE-ME (Membership), and DOE-HB (Homebound) reports. Descriptions of the reports can be found HERE. APC funding is calculated based on students' exceptionality areas categorized into three levels of funding; a fourth level exists for preschool students. Additional funding is provided for students receiving homebound services who meet the criteria for this funding during a one year timeframe (December 2 ‐ December 1).
