Schools for Disabled Students More Expensive
JEFFERSON CITY - A report found it costs more for state-run schools to teach students with severe disabilities in separate schools than in local districts. The Government Review Commission recommended the study because Missouri has the only separate state-run system for such students. The report found that it cost $56 million to serve about 1,800 severely disabled students last school year. The average cost per student at a state school was more than $30,000, while the average of one in the local district was less than $25,000.
