In the definition of "children with disabilities", provides that an eligible student who requires continued public school educational experience to facilitate his or her successful transition and integration into adult life is eligible for special education services through age 21, inclusive, which, for purposes of the Article, means the day before the student's 22nd birthday. Effective immediately.

In a Section concerning personnel reimbursement in the Children with Disabilities Article, provides that when a school district operates a school or program for a number of days in excess of the adopted school calendar but not to exceed 235 school days, reimbursement shall be increased by 1/180 (instead of 1/185) of the amount or rate paid under the reimbursement provisions for each day the school is operated in excess of 180 (instead of 185) days per calendar year. Provides that the State Board of Education shall require the publisher of a printed textbook (instead of a textbook) that is listed for use by the State Board of Education or that is furnished at public expense and is first published after July 19, 2006 (instead of furnished at public expense or provided by loan free of charge to a student) to furnish an accessible electronic file set of contracted print material to the National Instructional Materials Access Center, which shall then be available to the State Board of Education or its authorized user for the purpose of conversion to an accessible format for use by a child with a print disability and for distribution to local education agencies (instead of requiring a publisher to furnish to the State Board computer diskettes from which Braille versions of the textbook can be produced and a copy of the textbook to duplicate into Braille, large print, or tape). Effective July 1, 2007.
