The CEIS Practice Guide provides two scenarios each for voluntary CEIS and comprehensive CEIS. Each scenario describes an LEA’s implementation of voluntary or comprehensive CEIS and how the LEA or state could track the amount LEAs reserved for voluntary or comprehensive CEIS, the activities conducted using IDEA funds for voluntary or comprehensive CEIS, the target group of students, and ongoing student-level data about special education services. IDC and CIFR collaborated to develop the practice guide.
States and LEAs can use this practice guide with the Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) Fiscal and Student Data Tracker, which IDC and CIFR also developed. The tracker is a set of three tools (provider, school, and LEA) that states can use with their providers, schools, and LEAs to assist them in tracking the finances, services, and student data associated with CEIS.
