Help Children with Disabilities – Keep $600 Million Investment for Special Education in Budget
Governor Evers is proposing 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 this 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. The Survival Coalition of Wisconsin Disability Organizations is collecting these stories to share with legislators. Click here to view a printable flyer on this topic.
