MAASE announces support for Gov. Whitmer’s 2020 budget proposal

Governor’s budget represents greatest investment in public schools in a generation

LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Association of Administrators of Special Education (MAASE) today announced its support for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s 2020 budget proposal, which includes a $507 million investment in public school resources to improve every classroom statewide so every child has the chance to succeed.

A declaration of support released by the Board of Directors states: “The Michigan Association of Administrators of Special Education (MAASE) applauds Gov. Whitmer’s inclusion of significant new investments in public education in her proposed Fiscal Year 2020 budget. We are particularly appreciative of her proposed $120 million increase in special education funding. Access to a high-quality public education is something that all Michigan children deserve.”

If passed, Gov. Whitmer’s budget plan would triple the state’s number of literacy coaches and create a weighted formula to improve classroom resources for:

--Special education needs
--Low-income and at-risk children
--Career and Technical Education programs

The mission of the Michigan Association of Administrators of Special Education is to provide leadership for the development and implementation of quality programs and services for students with disabilities within the total education community. Learn more at maase.org.
