Fiscal Year 2013 → Question 2
BUDGET PAGE REFERENCE: 1-10 and 1-11
The Early Intervening Services project was supported in FY 2010 and FY 2011 by a grant from the United States Department of Education through the Maryland Stated Department of Education under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This grant terminated after FY 2011. Early intervening services are required under IDEA to prevent identification of students for special education. In FY 2012, there was a shift of 15.0 reading recovery teacher positions from the grant to the elementary schools budget, and a subsequent cut of 8.0 positions as part of the final action on the budget.
