Thanking the Administration for Prioritizing Students with Disabilities in its Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Proposal

thank you, administration
CEC President Responds to Administration’s Topline Budget Proposal

This week, CEC President Dennis Cavitt, Ed.D., sent a letter to President Biden thanking him for prioritizing educational equity and students with disabilities in his topline budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2022. The proposal, which seeks to increase federal education funding by 41%, puts the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) grants to states on a glidepath to full funding.

“If brought to fruition, this unprecedented and historic proposal would be transformational for children and youth with disabilities and the personnel that educate and support them,” Cavitt stated. The proposal also significantly increases IDEA Part C and targets a historic level of funding to high-poverty districts and student mental health.
