And for CEC advocates, it’s time to go to work!
Your mission is simple: schedule meetings with your elected officials at their district office anytime from now until Congress reconvenes September 8th. With Congress expected to take action on education funding, now is the time to meet with your Congressional delegation!
To assist you, CEC has put together a Congressional Recess Packet containing all the information you need to help in setting and holding your meetings (see attached):
- CEC’s Public Policy Agenda to highlight the other issues we are working to advance; and
- An Updated Issue Brief about special/gifted funding;
- An infographic to detail how budget cuts threaten special education; and
- 4 Step Action Plan to guide you and provide additional resources.
Please let us know if we can be of any help! And, let us know if you are able to schedule a meeting and how it goes!
Thank you for all you do on behalf of children and youth with exceptionalities and their families!
