Governor Evers is proposing to increase the state’s support of special education costs to a 60% reimbursement rate for special education funding in his budget, up from the current 24.5%. This would invest $600 million state dollars into special education, reducing pressure on local districts that are currently providing most of the funding. Some legislative leaders do not believe this investment is necessary. Please take the following very short survey and consider sharing a picture of your child/family so we can let legislators know how important it is to adequately fund special education.
Please see the information sheet for additional information on special education funding and share with your networks.
