Intervening Services (CEIS) Step by Step
Local Educational Agency
Track comprehensive or voluntary CEIS funds and children who receive CEIS.
LEAs that use IDEA Part B funds for CEIS are required to track the funds and the children receiving services. LEAs are required to report to the SEA the Part B funds reserved, the number of children who receive CEIS, and the number of children provided CEIS who subsequently received special education services under Part B. As a result of the 2016 final regulations on significant disproportionality, new reporting requirements and guidance from the U.S. Department of Education are under consideration.
