Letter to the US Department of Education regarding 1% Cap and Transparency

The co-chairs of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities Education Task Force submitted a letter to the US Department of Education (ED) regarding the process to review state requests for waivers on the 1 percent assessment cap under the Every Student Succeeds Act. The letter encourages ED to review with scrutiny the justification(s) provided by states to exceed the 1.0 percent cap, the impact on students with disabilities, especially as it relates to their access to the general curriculum in the regular classroom, and plans states will undertake to come into compliance with the law�s requirements.

Federal investments can ensure that all people have the building blocks of a decent life: health care, lifelong education, opportunities to work, income supplements when work is not possible, and affordable necessities, including food, housing, and caregiving for children, seniors, and people with disabilities.

Letter Opposing SSI Cuts

To Honorable Pete Sessions

AUCD urges you and all Members of the House of Representatives to vote against H.R. 2792 and to oppose any proposal to cut SSI to pay for reauthorization of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program. Reauthorization of the MIECHV program should never come at the expense of cuts to SSI, which would harm seniors, adolescents, and adults with disabilities, and their families.
