  3. As you complete your school budget for 2019-20 be sure to include funding support for you SAM work, including the 12th Annual National SAM Conference, Marco Island. Most schools and districts use Title I, II, general, professional development and discretionary funds to pay for SAM services. Annual SAM service fees for 2019-20 are the same as the current year. The national conference fees will remain the same, too.
