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.
Each Part B CoP is organized around a particular fiscal topic. In 2023, four CoPs will explore Differentiated Monitoring and Support (DMS), IDEA Fiscal Timelines, New IDEA State Fiscal Staff, or Part B State Set-Aside Funds. Part C CoPs are organized regionally—Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Western—and cover a range of IDEA fiscal topics. Contact your state’s CIFR TA liaisons for more information.
