Part B – Allocation of IDEA Part B Subgrants to LEAs
Part B OSEP 2017 Fiscal Monitoring Protocol: LEA Allocations
This monitoring protocol was implemented in 2016 as part of OSEP’s system of Differentiated Monitoring and Support (DMS) with states involved in intensive engagement with OSEP. The document is intended to ensure that states correctly allocate IDEA sections 611 and 619 funds to LEAs. To effectively monitor this area, OSEP developed a protocol addressing five specific components of the LEA allocations process: (1) base payments, (2) base payment adjustments, (3) allocations based on population and poverty, (4) new and significantly expanding charter school LEAs, and (5) section 619 allocations to LEAs if funding is below the 1997 level.
