On average, up to 25 percent of a district budget includes special education expenses, and from 10 to 22 percent of the student body is eligible for special education services. In this session, participants will learn some of the key concepts in special education; what questions to ask about a district's special education expenses; how to understand the “lingo of acronyms” associated with special education matters, and more. Presenters include a director of special education who also serves as a board member; and an experienced school board attorney, who has mediated and litigated cases in all levels of the state and federal administrative and court system.
