Hi everyone,
After reviewing the Special Education Funding Plan several times,  I think references to FASD should not be included.   We are showing the cost containment part of the plan and at the same time asking for the legislature to fund an awareness program.  I don't think this would be looked upon favorably by the legislature.  Also, the legislature is looking for hard cost containment and at this time I do not believe we can put a dollar amount on how much a FASD awareness program would save in special education costs.
 I think that a program for awareness about FASD is a good idea and should be pursued outside of this document.
