Part B – Local Educational Agency (LEA) Maintenance of Effort (MOE)
Dear Colleague Letter [LEA MOE Adjustment]
This letter addresses the possibility of taking an LEA MOE adjustment due to increased IDEA Part B funds resulting from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The letter notes that IDEA requires states to make annual determinations about the performance of LEAs and if the SEA determines that an LEA does not meet the requirements of Part B, the SEA must prohibit that LEA from taking the LEA MOE adjustment.
