This webinar examined the critical features of the maintenance of effort (MOE) fiscal requirements, and discussed the challenges expected or experienced by LEAs in meeting MOE due to budget cuts and other factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, we reviewed LEA MOE tools co-developed by CIFR, the IDEA Data Center (IDC) and the National Center for Systemic Improvement (NCSI).

CIFR also held a follow up Open Door session to further discuss the anticipated impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on LEA MOE. SEA staff had the opportunity to share their knowledge and common challenges with CIFR content experts and their states’ counterparts.
