|Subject:||Use of Special Education Funding by Charter Schools|
|I will soon introduce legislation that would require charter schools to exclusively spend its special education payments from school districts on the costs associated with educating special education students.
Under current law, charter schools receive payments from school districts to educate special education students; however, charter schools are not required to use these funds for special education students. My legislation will require charter schools to do so.
A copy of the legislation is attached. I hope that you will join me in supporting this legislation.
Introduced as HB1665
