LEVinar Recording: The Special Education Funding Cap
School districts receive both state and federal funding to provide educational services and supports to students with disabilities. In Washington, the state provides the biggest portion of funding for special education, but the state currently caps funding for school districts at 13.5% of their student population, even if more than 13.5% of students receive special education services. However, districts are still required by state and federal law to provide special education services to all students with a qualifying disability.
In this webinar, we explain what the special education funding cap is, how many school districts are impacted, and why eliminating the cap is important.
