Special Education Costs Take Up Large Chunk of Baltimore’s School Budget

Special Education

Baltimore’s school system is once again set to spend roughly a quarter of its $1.3 billion budget on special education services.

This year’s proposed budget, which the school board is scheduled to vote on May 8, allocates more than $278 million for a variety of special education services — about the same as last year. Most of it pays for staff positions to educate about 12,000 students in special education programs.
