AASA and ASBO Seek IDEA MOE Relief in next COVID-19 Package

AASA and ASBO recently penned a letter urging for the inclusion of IDEA funding in the next COVID-19 package. An excerpt from the letter reads: 

"Our organizations have championed the full funding of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) for decades and we believe it is critical that the next relief package provides more resources to districts to ensure they are meeting their obligations under IDEA for each student with a disability that we educate as we transform the delivery of education in the upcoming school year.

We write to request key flexibility around a provision in IDEA that is intended to ensure districts maintain constant spending levels on special education, despite other budgetary pressures they experience."
