Briefing Paper #2- Issues Concerning the Implementation of Recommended Cost-Based Funding Model. (15 KB)
Recent Developments: In November/December 2002, Dr. Tom Parrish presented the final report and recommendations to the Joint Education Committee (JEC) of the Wyoming Legislature. In December, the JEC voted against CSEF's overall recommendation to replace the state's 100 percent state reimbursement of special education expenditures with a cost-based reimbursement system. However, the JEC approved other recommendations made in the study, such as state review of special education services and increased emphasis on regional services.
