CASE is a recognized leader in advocacy for special education policy. CASE along with CEC has a long history of success in impacting this country's policy and legislation in special education. Throughout the year, our policy and legislative team makes comments in the Federal Register, takes positions on current legislation, and works with our members across the country to ensure that the voice of special education administrators and the students they serve is taken into account during the policymaking process.

Each summer, CASE sponsors a Special Education Legislative Summit in Washington D.C.  Participants experience guided practice sessions on how to interact with legislators and spend time "On the Hill" implementing these new skills.  You can learn more about this experience by clicking here (link opens in a new window).

When it comes to the federal budget, CASE relies on the expertise of the team at the Committee for Education Funding.  A great resource for CASE members is their budget book which can be found here.
