Learn How To:
- Identify the need for coordinated early intervening services (CEIS)
- Identify local educational agencies (LEAs) with significant disproportionality
- Implement CEIS (required and voluntary)
- Report on children served
- Identify technical assistance requirements
Did you know LEAs can use up to 15% of Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Part B Section 611 and 619 funds for Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS)?
Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) are services funded with IDEA Part B funds for children who are not currently identified as needing special education or related services, but who need additional academic or behavioral support to succeed in a general education environment.
Permissible CEIS activities include:
- Providing professional development for teachers and other school staff to enable such personnel to deliver scientifically based academic and behavioral interventions, including scientifically based literacy instruction and, where appropriate, instruction on the use of adaptive and instructional software; and
- Providing educational and behavioral evaluations, services, and supports, including scientifically based literacy instruction.
That means you can provide professional development for teachers and other school staff or directly fund scientifically based academic and behavioral interventions to K-12 students without a disability with funding through the IDEA.
