Special Education Expenditure Project (SEEP)

AIR has been the national leader in the area of special education fiscal policy for nearly twenty years, when we first established the Center for Special Education Finance (CSEF) through support from the U.S. Department of Education. CSEF research has assisted the federal government and many states in measuring special education costs and expenditures and in formulating fiscal policy.

During this time, AIR completed the largest study of special education spending and services across the nation through the federal Special Education Expenditure Project (SEEP). Findings from this study are detailed in the reports listed below, and a full list of CSEF/SEEP publications can be found on the archived website.
