Pennsylvania’s Special Education Funding Commission will travel across the state this fall to discuss special education funding with school administrators, parents and educators. They will compile their findings in a report due by Nov. 30. The report may include recommendations to the General Assembly to change the formula that distributes special education dollars to Pennsylvania’s public school districts.
The commission was tasked with the same duty in 2013. However, due to a new state law that took effect in June, the commission cannot review special education funding payments to charter schools or cyber charter schools. This will create a new limitation for lawmakers.
