Recommendations for Improving School Funding in Mississippi

Mississippi

~~“Recommendation #3c: Create a commission to study and make recommendations related to service-based (IEP-based) funding
While multiple-tiered weights based on diagnosis alone would represent a big step forward for Mississippi, EdBuild believes that an IEP-based model, which incorporates consideration of both diagnosis and services, could move the needle even further to improve the precision of special education funding throughout the state. Funding based on student IEPs would take most of the guesswork out of the financing of special education and would significantly increase the impartiality of funding for students with special needs.”
