Students Needs Determine Funding for Services
The Delaware legislature passed legislation that would fund educational services for special education students based on their individual needs rather than on their disability category
HB 436 establishes that all districts will adopt needs-based funding for special needs students. This step moves Delaware toward a more flexible and equitable system. In the future we will work to expand needs-based funding to assist more students, such as English Language Learners, low-income students, and gifted and talented students.
