Special Education Fiscal Advisory Committee (SEFAC)

What is SEFAC?

SEFAC was established in 2006 by House Bill 06-1375 and is the Special Education Fiscal Advisory Committee.  The committee is charged with the allocation of an annual appropriation, currently $4 million.  The committee has the discretion to award grants to administrative units for students with disabilities who qualify as “high cost” students. In addition to analyzing the high cost applications and awarding grants to administrative units, the SEFAC produces an annual report to the legislature which includes special education data from the collection year, current fiscal year and changes the committee recommends regarding the manner of distributing funds to Administrative Units for special education programs through the Exceptional Children’s Educational Act (ECEA).
