IDEA Part B 611/619, ARP IDEA Part B 611/619, and Special Education Activities  (Recovery, Bonus Populations, Dyslexia) – a follow up to the Fiscal Summit of November 2021.

October 20, 2022:
Session A: 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Session B: 1:30 - 2:30 p.m.

The CT State Department of Education’s Bureau of Special Education (BSE), IDEA Fiscal Manager Thomas Boudreau will offer LEAs the opportunity to check in on the current state of the plan developed during the Fiscal Summit of November 2021. He will discuss the current funding circumstances and educational environment that the LEA’s of CT are experiencing – along with strategies for reengaging the plan (modifications or new objectives) in order to ensure federal funding allocations for Students with Disabilities are being utilized. 

Be prepared to examine the District’s plan, accomplishable objectives and management timeline for the next school year, in order to have a successful actualization of the one-time funding opportunities and further implementation of IDEA Part B and ARP IDEA Part B Sections 611/619. 

After the session, teams will be offered an opportunity to sign up for a brief “fiscal conversation” with the BSE (to occur over the next few months), to ensure that objectives are on track and come away with confidence that the LEA is expending resources to support students with disabilities for improved outcomes.

MIDDLETOWN, Conn.—The Library at the State Education Resource Center (SERC) is reopening for in-person browsing for the new school year.

Beginning Tuesday, September 6, visitors can make an appointment to come to the SERC Library space to browse the collection, check out materials, and have SERC librarians assist with research-related inquiries. The library is currently located at 100 Roscommon Drive, 1st floor, Middletown, CT.

To make an appointment, go to

Appointments are available during the SERC Library business hours: Tuesday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Wednesday to Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The library will be open one Saturday a month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Patrons who visit the library only to return materials do not need to make an appointment, but must come when the library is open and hand off the materials to a SERC librarian.

SERC takes the health and safety of its patrons and staff seriously. With this in mind, the library will limit visits to two people per appointment to allow for social distancing. Visitors will be asked to sign in and out at the library’s entrance for contact-tracing purposes. This does not apply to visitors only making returns.

The library space had been closed to visitors since March 2020. During the pandemic, checkouts and returns had been available by appointment through the building lobby.

Visitors who still prefer to meet staff in the lobby for a scheduled pickup or return may reach out to a SERC librarian at 860-632-1485 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
