Track funds for and children receiving comprehensive or voluntary CEIS.
LEAs that use IDEA Part B funds for CEIS are required to track the funds and the children receiving services. LEAs are required to report to the SEA the Part B funds reserved (whether voluntary or comprehensive), the number of children who receive voluntary CEIS, and the number of children provided voluntary CEIS who subsequently received special education services under Part B. Starting with the 2023-24 school year, LEAs will also be required to track the numbers of children with and without disabilities who received comprehensive CEIS.
