It’s federal appropriations season and COPAA led a group of members to meet with their elected officials to ask for critical resources that will put the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) onto a glide path to full funding. If you missed the virtual Hill Days – no worries, all members can and should communicate with your Senators and Representative about the need for critical resources that will put the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) onto a glide path to full funding. Read the alert and email Congress today! Tell them IDEA must be funded at $15.5 billion in the Fiscal Year 2022 appropriations bill so that schools have adequate funds available to support the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students. Read here for more about COPAA’s overall recommendations to the 117th Congress:
