Fund Basic Special Education Services for Kindergarten through Third Grade
Currently, Delaware does not provide funding for students in grades K-3 who are in need of basic special education services. While the State does provide funding for "intensive and complex" special education services across all grades, and funds "basic" services for 4th through 12th, it has continued to ignore the critical need for funding basic services at this critical age/grade level.
House Bill 12 seeks to correct this by promoting the support of early identification and assistance for students needing basic special education services. This early intervention of services would, consequently, reduce the financial burden posed in later years of a child's schooling.
Tell your State Senator and representative to provide the needed funding for basic special education services for students in Kindergarten through Third Grade.
