The EF-S-03 form for contract approval for special education services has been updated to include categories of service providers listed in Maine Unified Special Education Regulation Birth to Age Twenty (MUSER) that were not listed on the form, including those from the most recent updates to MUSER. The form, which is due Oct. 15, also requires a more precise identification of the funding source for these services.
The revised form is available online. Forms already submitted for this fiscal year will be processed as is; school administrative units that have not yet submitted their EF-S-03 form may use either the old or revised form for this fiscal year. Beginning July 1, 2014, only the revised form will be available.
