IDC Provides IDEA Data Quality Technical Assistance

IDC provides a full range of technical assistance to address the needs and challenges of states, school districts, and early intervention programs related to IDEA data quality. We focus on data requirements under IDEA Sections 618 and 616, including the SSIP indicators.

Our TA includes:

  • General/universal TA through tools, products, and other information available through the IDC website, listserves, presentations, and social media;
  • Intensive TA to address more complex data needs and challenges using a systemic approach at the state and locals levels.
  • Targeted TA through a State Liaison model that uses email, telephone, short-term consultation, and regional workshops on particular data quality topics; and
  • Guiding Principles for TA: To learn more about the beliefs and practices that guide IDC’s TA, please see our Guiding Principles for Technical Assistance.
