Special education funding likely to go up this year

It’s great to see that there is significant momentum this session for additional special education funding.  It is too early to tell how much or which formulas will change but there will be a positive change.  Here are the special education bills under consideration (an * means the bill is alive):

HB 1093* / SB 5312 – several formula changes intended to increase funding

HB 1910 – several formula and program changes intended to increase funding

SB 5091* – removes federal funding from safety net formula and allows federal funds to train paraeducators

SB 5262 – program changes to increase effectiveness

SB 5532* – changes to program and increasing parent participation

SB 5736* –  increases special education excess cost multiplier
