It may risk funding if it doesn't clean up its act.
The Washoe County School District must make immediate changes involving the education of children with special needs or risk losing funding, according to a letter from the State Superintendent of Public Instruction Dale Erquiaga.
The state recently told the district it has until next Friday to submit a plan to make corrections on how it handles Individual Education Programs, which are federally mandated plans created for children with special needs.
The letter follows the district's failure to make all the corrections the state told the district to make a year ago. That's when a June 4, 2013 complaint found school officials did not implement all of the services outlined in the IEP of Larry Dailey's daughter.
