ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
State and federal revenues for special education do not provide adequate resources, so local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to make up the difference. Since 2003-04, General Fund contributions towards special education have been on the rise, recently nearing 50% of total expenditures, making effective resource management not only desirable but essential.
LEAs face a number of challenges in special education, including potential state funding deficits and the implementation of the Local Control and Accountability Plan services and actions. In addition to these changes, LEAs will need to keep an eye on what is happening at the state level along with legislative actions that could impact how special education funding is currently allocated.
With these important issues in mind, the focus of the workshop will be on providing participants with tools and tips to help them support high-quality programs for students with disabilities that are legally defensible but that don’t break the bank.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This workshop is a must for staff responsible for effectively managing, funding, and monitoring special education programs, as well as principals and instructional leaders working to successfully implement meaningful pre-referral interventions.
