About the Workshop

Across the state, the number of students with disabilities continues to grow while overall student enrollment declines. State and federal special education revenues have long been inadequate, and the squeeze from increased need and reduced resources only adds to the necessity for higher General Fund contributions. In light of funding inadequacy, growing compliance demands, and increased expectations for improved student outcomes—local educational agencies (LEAs) must ensure effective program and resource management. The 2019 State Budget provided one-time revenue increases that were welcomed by LEAs but that create uncertainty as we look to 2020–21. Understanding what is driving special education costs locally is essential in operating legally defensible pro-grams for students with disabilities that are also cost effective. With these important issues in mind, this workshop will provide participants with the most up-to-date information on funding changes, tools and tips for man-aging high-quality cost-effective special education programs, and guidance on ways to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.
