L.A. Unified’s school board wants to use state funds for special education students

Jun 16, 2016 by

Los Angeles school officials vowed Tuesday to fight to be able to spend the money they get from the state for special education programs.

The response follows a California Department of Education decision in May that required the district to redirect hundreds of millions of dollars for students with disabilities to other high-needs groups, including English language learners, poor students and foster children.

Under a state funding process called the Local Control Funding Formula, students in those groups are supposed to get more money because they often require more support from their schools.
