IDEA Fiscal Forum 2020
The mission of the IDEA Fiscal Forums is to provide in-person opportunities for state directors of special education and IDEA fiscal specialists to build knowledge and capacity by connecting and sharing with peers on critical IDEA fiscal issues.
State directors of special education and IDEA Part B fiscal specialists are invited to attend the IDEA Fiscal Forum (IFF) 2020 hosted by the Center for IDEA Fiscal Reporting (CIFR) on April 15–17, 2020 at the Sheraton Phoenix Crescent Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona.
Please join us and your colleagues from other states to exchange experiences and solutions to common special education fiscal questions. Participants will increase their capacity to ensure appropriate use and oversight of IDEA funds and to collect and report special education fiscal data. Technical assistance providers from CIFR and other national IDEA TA centers, along with staff from the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) at the U.S. Department of Education, will be on hand and available to support your professional development.
The program agenda will be occasionally updated on this website as additional details are confirmed.
Registration is free, but space is limited. The number of registrants per state is temporarily capped at three to allow states equal opportunity to attend. Additional registrants will be added to a waiting list and will receive a confirmation email if and when their registration is accepted.
- State directors of special education should determine who in their agency should attend.
- State staff should coordinate with their state director before registering.
TRAVEL AND HOTEL
To encourage participation and maximize collaboration, CIFR will pay for lodging from April 15–17 (up to two nights) for two people with IDEA fiscal responsibilities from each state. Please consult with your state director before registering. Additional registrants will be responsible for their own lodging fees.
- By registering, your hotel reservations will be made, and you will only need to check in when you arrive. You will need to provide a credit card at that time for any incidentals.
- Registrants are responsible for their own travel.
