Event Name:Show Me The Money: Re-Imagining Funding for Students with Disabilities
Description:Show Me The Money: Re-Imagining Funding for Students with Disabilities | March 2-3, 2020 | Denver, Colorado
Please plan on attending the welcome dinner and fireside chat at 5:30 p.m. on March 2. The meeting will conclude at 3 p.m. on March 3.

Every student with a disability deserves a quality education. However, current strategies to fund special education are archaic, complicated, and inequitable. As the population of students with disabilities grows in both traditional district and charter schools, now is the time to tackle the funding crisis. By engaging our partners in both sectors and our collective expertise in finance, law, and policy, the Center is committed to facilitating a lively debate incorporating diverse perspectives.
 
We hope you will join us for this invitation-only, in-depth, interactive forum focused on spurring innovative ideas to re-imagine how we fund the education of students with disabilities.
