Action Alert: Support Emergency IDEA Funding

CEC invites you to write to your Members of Congress to provide a one-time infusion of emergency funds for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in a stimulus bill in order to directly target and support the need of states, school districts, and educators.

Despite the many pressing stressors, educators across the country are committed to serving all students during the COVID-19 crisis, including students with disabilities. It is imperative that Congress provide more resources to support school personnel in providing remote, online, and/or tele-education to students with exceptionalities.
Please follow the prompts on CEC’s Legislative Action Center to contact your Members of Congress today.
