                Navigating the Transition to a Census-Based Funding Model

March 15, 2019 - Green Mountain Club, Waterbury, Vermont, 9 am to 3 pm
Audience:  Special Education Administrators, Business Officials

Act 173 will shift Vermont’s current special education reimbursement model to a census-based funding model in FY2021.  In order to prepare for this change, this workday will include a Vermont Agency of Education (AOE) presentation on Act 173 changes and review of its new budget tool to help SUs/SDs understand and plan for its financial impact on local budgets.   It will also include a panel of representatives from SUs/SDs focused on current work underway to meet student needs with more flexible spending and control or decrease costs in systematic ways. Participants will work at tables in the afternoon to begin or continue planning in this area.  Lunch is provided.
