About the Webinar
Across the state, the number of students with disabilities continues to grow while overall student enrollment declines. While local educational agencies (LEAs) have benefited from multiple years of increased special education funding, state and federal special education revenues continue to be inadequate. One-time COVID-19-related funding, greatly needed to address COVID-19 learning impacts, has created a maintenance of effort (MOE) conundrum for the state. As we look to the 2022-23 school year, we can expect the state to address this conundrum through increased funding, but there is no guarantee in terms of what form increased funding will take and how, or even if, it will help address local MOE challenges. Continuing compliance demands, demands for compensatory education due to COVID-19-related learning impacts, and systemic staffing shortages will make it challenging for LEAs to operate legally defensible programs for students with disabilities that ensure equity and access and that effectively maximize both people and fiscal resources. 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 effective program management, and guidance on ways to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.
