While local educational agencies (LEAs) have benefited from four years of increased state special education funding, special education programs continue to require substantial resources to cover programmatic costs in personnel, service delivery, and administrative support. For the 2023-24 school year, LEAs may expect tightening State Budget resources, tough choices, and minimal increases to special education funding, which may impact special education programs. Continuing compliance monitoring, demands for compensatory education, learning recovery needs, and systemic staffing shortages may make it challenging to operate legally defensible programs that effectively maximize people and fiscal resources to ensure equity and access for students with disabilities. As special education leaders and fiscal colleagues plan and implement programs focused on student needs, this webinar will provide participants with the most up-to-date information on funding changes, tools and tips for effective program management, and guidance on ways to ensure equity, promote inclusive practices, and improve outcomes for students with disabilities.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar 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 a meaningful multi-tiered system of supports and improve outcomes for every student.
