School districts could be getting more money from the state to educate deaf and blind children whose parents don’t want to send them to the state schools for the deaf and blind. Senator Peter Kinder’s bill has been advanced in the state senate. He says the issue was brought to him by the father of a profoundly deaf child in Chaffee. Kinder’s bill lets the school district bill the state for the extra costs of educating a child with one of those disabilities. It still needs another round of voting in the senate and approval by the House before the program can kick in.
