Congress is drafting and will soon vote on a new COVID-19 stimulus bill, done through Budget Reconciliation, that will provide necessary funding for schools and universities to reopen and support students and families. Currently, the House’s proposal does not include specific funding for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and does not ensure support for our most marginalized students. There’s still time for us to rally support for targeted funding for students with disabilities!
We urge YOU, our parents, students, and advocates, to reach out to your Senators and House Representatives and tell them: Include in your emergency relief package expanded education funding for IDEA and other marginalized students. We cannot leave our students behind during this pandemic.
