CIFR invites state staff with shared interests in IDEA fiscal issues to join Part B and Part C Communities of Practice (CoPs) facilitated by CIFR TA liaisons. The online meetings are specially designed to meet the learning and networking needs of state staff to help them improve the quality of their state IDEA fiscal data. Through discussion and sharing of expertise, participants will expand their knowledge and solve problems of practice.
- Part B CoPs are organized around fiscal topics. In 2024, three CoPs will focus on New IDEA State Fiscal Staff, IDEA Fiscal Timelines, and Problems of Practice.
- Part C CoPs are organized regionally—Eastern, Southern, Central, and Western—and cover a range of IDEA fiscal topics. Contact your state’s CIFR TA liaisons for more information and to learn how to join.
