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, increased expectations for improved student outcomes, and anticipated changes to the Assembly Bill 602 Funding Model—local educational agencies must ensure effective program and resource management. Understanding what is driving special education costs locally is essential in operating legally defensible programs for students with disabilities that are also cost effective. With these important issues in mind, this webinar will provide participants with the most up-to-date information on funding changes, tools and tips for managing high-quality cost-effective special education programs, and guidance on ways to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.

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 students with disabilities.
