CSEF was funded by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), U.S. Department of Education, from 1992 to 2004. This study is an update of the 1999-2000 CSEF survey of state special education funding formulas. Current information on this topic was gathered through a survey of state special education directors conducted by Project Forum at NASDSE in conjunction with Tom Parrish and Jenifer Harr-Robins of AIR.
