The bill creates the high-cost special education trust fund (trust
fund) to be used for high-cost special education trust fund grants (trust
fund grants) to public school special education administrative units that
have made significant expenditures in providing special education
services to a child with a disability.
The trust fund consists of money transferred from the general fund

to the trust fund for the 2018-19 fiscal year, as well as an annual
appropriation beginning in the 2019-20 fiscal year from the marijuana tax
cash fund to the trust fund.
The department of education may expend interest and income from
the trust fund for trust fund grants awarded by the Colorado special
education fiscal advisory committee (committee).
The bill specifies the eligibility criteria for a trust fund grant and
criteria that the committee shall consider in determining the trust fund
grant recipients and the amount of the trust fund grants.
The bill requires an annual report to the education committees of
the general assembly concerning trust fund grants awarded during the
fiscal year.
