Private special schools; application for funding.
The Free State of Bavaria grants subsidies to the sponsors of private special schools for the necessary school expenses as well as compensation for the necessary personnel expenses. As an alternative to the reimbursement of personnel costs, state teachers and other personnel are assigned to them.
The operation of private special schools is to be ensured through adequate funding.
The Free State of Bavaria reimburses the sponsors of private special schools for the necessary school expenses (current and one-time school expenses) and the costs of school buildings (including school sports buildings). In addition, the Free State of Bavaria reimburses the necessary personnel expenses or provides personnel to private special schools. Under certain conditions (Art. 34a BaySchFG), the sponsors of private special schools can receive improved state funding.
