Illinois State Representative Linda Chapa LaVia.
– From Bev Johns
State Representative Linda Chapa LaVia has drafted the Amendment to House Bill 2808 to maintain in Illinois law Special Education Personnel Reimbursement.
Please thank her (see below), and urge her to work to get her Amendment actually added to HB 2808.
Please call/email with this message:
SPECIAL EDUCATION FUNDING SHOULD BE RELATED TO THE NEED FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION,
NOT BASED ON THE NUMBER OF GENERAL EDUCATION STUDENTS.
Say to State Representatives: HOUSE BILL 2808 NEEDS TO BE AMENDED TO MAINTAIN THE CURRENT SPECIAL EDUCATION PERSONNEL REIMBURSEMENT OF $9,000 FOR EACH SPECIAL ED TEACHER (and other specialized personnel).
Say to State Senators: FOR SENATE BILL 1 (NOW AN EMPTY SHELL BILL), THE AMENDMENT NOW BEING NEGOTIATED SHOULD NOT CONTAIN THE ELMINATION OF SPECIAL EDUCATION PERSONNEL REIMBURSEMENT.
(1) Immediately contact the Sponsors of House Bill 2808.
