Time to Save Special Education Funding

The #KSLEG is attacking public education funding again and this time is looking to rewrite the formula for how school districts receive state funds for special education. With only a few days to review the bill, experts aren't able to give a comprehensive report on just how this will impact our schools, but they are sounding the alarm that this will reduce desperately needed state SPED funds in 2024 and beyond.


The hearing for this new proposal is Tuesday, 2/13 -- meaning that Kansans only had a few short days to review and comment on this change to a complicated funding formula. We need YOU to stand up for public education funding now.

HB2738, which would freeze special education funding, was taken up by House K-12 late Thursday and scheduled for a hearing Tuesday. The Special Education Task Force created for this purpose was not consulted, nor was ample time given to the public to review the bill and understand the far-reaching impacts on Kansas kids. Click here to view background on HB2738from our friends at Six Degrees of Activism.

Written testimony is due by 10:00 AM Monday (2/12)

We understand it's a tight turnaround, so we're making it super quick and easy for you to share your voice with the House K-12 Education Budget Committee members. Thank you for taking 3 minutes to help save special education funding and advocate for transparency in government.
