(April 25, 2013) Gov. Tom Corbett today signed legislation that will lead to overhauling the way future state funding for special education is distributed to school districts.
The legislation, which had strong support in the House and Senate, creates a 15-member commission to develop a special education funding formula to replace an archaic one that is more than two decades old. The panel has until Sept. 30 to complete its work and produce a recommendation for the Legislature and administration to consider.
