An Act To Amend Title 14 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Public Schools.


This bill provides State funding to kindergarten through third grade for basic special education. State funding already occurs for intensive and complex special education during these grades. Currently the basic special education funding runs from fourth through twelfth grade. This bill is an effort to promote earlier identification and assistance for basic special education needs which should then mitigate costs over the long term.Pursuant to its terms, funding for K-3 special education will be phased in gradually over 4 years.
