The community is fortunate to have the work of SECAC to rely on for guidance. Dr. Martirano’s FY19 budget proposal reflects some of this as he requested $3.1 million for 68.1 new positions, a new Special Education Strategic Plan Scorecard, and a new parent liaison position. Much more is needed. Further increasing adequatly trained staffed will help. Reducing class size as well as the number of kids per class with an Individual Education Plan will help. Understanding that the burden of proof on parents is too high and they often have too little information to act will help.
