Local Educational Agency (LEA) Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Organizer
Reporting LEA MOE Data to OSEP
Although there are no specific statutory or regulatory references to SEA reporting of LEA MOE data to the federal government, there are general IDEA statutory and regulatory references giving the Secretary of Education authority to collect data. Under this authority, the Secretary requires all States to annually submit IDEA Part B MOE Reduction and Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) data via the online EDFacts Metadata and Process System (EMAPS). Additional CEIS guidance and resources can be found using the CEIS Resources Step by Step.
34 CFR § 300.640 Annual report of children served—report requirement. Requires SEAs to submit annual reports to the Secretary of Education on required information, including data related to LEA MOE.
