A Review of State Approaches to IDEA Reporting of Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS)
IDEA allows, and sometimes requires, LEAs to use funds provided under IDEA Part B for CEIS students not identified for and receiving special education and related services. There are multiple data collection and reporting requirements associated with use of these funds for CEIS. IDC staff reviewed and led a discussion on how a diverse subset of states and their LEAs are working to meet those requirements.
