SB 653 - This act states that school districts located at least partially in Jackson County shall be reimbursed fully by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for the costs associated with offering special educational services to any children that are placed by the Department of Social Services. When the department places a child, the department shall inform the local school district that the child is in the department's custody.

The act cites Article X, Section 21 of the Missouri Constitution, which is the Hancock amendment's unfunded mandate provision.

This act is identical to SCS/SB 102 from 2005.
