1 2011 OSEP Leadership Mega Conference Collaboration to Achieve Success from Cradle to Career 2.0 Coordinated Early Intervening Services and Reduction of Maintenance of Effort: What does Table 8 tell us? Lucille Sleger, Office of Special Education Programs, Monitoring and State Improvement Planning Division Meredith Miceli, Office of Special Education Programs, Research to Practice Division Danielle Crain, Data Accountability Center Session ID: 218

2 Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS)

3 Purpose of the Presentation – Statutory authority and regulations – Verification and audit findings ( ) – Using Part B funds for CEIS and CEIS/MOE – Purpose and use of Table 8 data – OSEP guidance

4 Background Information

5 Statutory Authority The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004—Section 613(f) (f)(1) - General requirements (f)(2) - Activities (f)(3) - Does not limit or create the right to FAPE (f)(4) – Reporting (f)(5) - Coordination with Elementary and Secondary Education Act of l965 IDEA Section 618(a)(3) – Data collection

6 Regulatory Authority 34 CFR § Early intervening services 34 CFR § (b)(2)--Disproportionality and required use of 15% of Part B funds 34 CFR § (a) and (d)--MOE Reduction and Adjustments to local funds

7 CEIS Issues ( ) Using CEIS funds for students who were not eligible The SEA was not collecting required data from LEAs:  students who received CEIS services data  students who received CEIS services who subsequently received special education services

8 CEIS Issues ( ) The State did not track: ▪ The amount of funds used for CEIS ▪How CEIS funds were used (e.g., for allowable costs)

9 State Procedures State procedures used to implement CEIS include: ▪ Calculating the amount of CEIS funds that can be approved in LEA applications and budgets ▪ Identifying significant disproportionality to determine if the LEA must use 15% of its Part B funds for CEIS ▪ Notifying LEAs that funds must be use for CEIS and ensuring those funds are used for CEIS ▪ Notifying LEAs about when Part B funds must be expended ▪ Ensuring CEIS funds are used for eligible children and allowable activities ▪ Collecting and reporting required CEIS data

10 Using Part B Funds for CEIS and CEIS/ MOE Reduction

11 Using Part B Funds for CEIS A State must determine significant disproportionality annually The date on which significant disproportionality was determined determines the fiscal years of grants awarded under Part B that can be used for CEIS The LEA may use Part B section 611 and/or section 619 funds Calculations (of up to 15%) are made prior to any other IDEA reductions

12 Using Part B Funds for CEIS If significant disproportionality is identified, the Part B funds must be used for CEIS during the period funds are available for obligation If significant disproportionality is not identified, the LEA may reallocate unspent funds during the time the funds are available for obligation Follow applicable supplement/not supplant requirements to avoid audit issues

13 CEIS and MOE An LEA may use up to 15% of the amount it receives under Part B, both sections 611 and 619, for CEIS, less any amount reduced by the LEA pursuant to 34 CFR § See 34 CFR § (a)

14 Example Prior year’s allocation: $ 1,000,000 Current year’s allocation: $ 2,000,000 Increase: $ 1,000,000 Available for MOE reduction: $ 500,000 Maximum available for CEIS: $ 300,000 If the LEA uses $100,000 for MOE, the LEA can use $200,000 for CEIS

15 CEIS and MOE  If an LEA is REQUIRED to use the entire 15% available for CEIS because it has been identified with significant disproportionality under 34 CFR § , then the LEA cannot reduce its MOE  As described on the previous slide, the LEA must subtract any amount used for MOE reduction from the amount it intends to use for CEIS; therefore, if the LEA reduced its MOE, it would also have to reduce its CEIS amount, and the LEA would not have 15% available for CEIS

16 CEIS and MOE  The amount of funds expended by an LEA for CEIS must count toward the maximum amount of expenditures that the LEA may reduce under 34 CFR § (a)  This means that, no matter how much is available for CEIS (up to 15%) or for MOE reduction under § (a), the total amount expended on CEIS and MOE reduction together cannot exceed the lesser of the total amount available for MOE reduction under § (a) or the amount available for CEIS See 34 CFR §§ (d) and (a)

17 CEIS and MOE When an LEA reduces its MOE pursuant to 34 CFR § or § , the adjusted amount is the LEA’s new MOE level until the LEA, on its own, increases the level of special education expenditures, using local, or State and local, funds

18 Purpose and Use of Table 8

19 Purpose of Table 8 Table 8 is used to: Determine the amount of FY 2009 Part B funds reserved for CEIS Exercise fiduciary responsibilities to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse and to ensure the effective use of FY 2009 Part B funds Provide information to Congress and the public regarding LEAs that took advantage of CEIS and MOE flexibilities

20 Use of Table 8 Data Table 8 data is used to: Inform Congress of the implementation and use of the CEIS and MOE reduction provisions in IDEA Monitor States on the implementation of CEIS and MOE reduction Report to the public on ideadata.org and the Annual Report to Congress

26 Table 8 Web-based Data Entry & Submission System LEAS send data to the SEA SEA enters data into the Web- based system SEA submits data to DAC LEAs enter data into the Web- based system SEAs submit data to DAC LEAS send data to the SEA SEA uploads data to the Web-based system DAC retrieves the data Option 1 Option 2 Option 3

27 Table 8 Web-based Data Entry & Submission System DAC sent out an evaluation of the system during the month of June Evaluation contained 13 questions DAC received 65 responses

28 Table 8 Web-based Submission System (cont.) Anticipated changes for data collection based on recommendations: – Inform states prior to submitting data: Data must be reported in all sections for all LEAs Section A does not allow “-9” because of automatic calculations States need to proceed to “View and Submit SEA data” to submit the data

29 Table 8 Web-based Submission System (cont.) Anticipated changes for data collection based on recommendations (cont.): – Submission year field (Section B2) will be pre- loaded with more options – Easier way to reset passwords – confirmation when data have been submitted Notification that data are locked after submission – Provide a final submission report with LEA and statewide numbers

30 Table 8 Web-based Submission System (cont.) Exploring feasibility and cost of the following changes based on recommendations: – Adding a field for data notes – Allowing states to manually upload data for only certain LEAs, instead of having to upload all of the data at once – Allowing dollar amounts to be entered as decimals and not rounded – Improving the method of data entry for each LEA – Retrieving NCES numbers from EDFacts

31 Preliminary Analysis Percentage of LEAs in each determination level that controls whether the LEA may be able to reduce MOE for SY : – 84.5 percent received meets requirements – 12.1 percent received needs assistance – 1.1 percent received needs intervention – 0.3 percent received needs substantial intervention – 2.0 percent did not receive a determination

32 Preliminary Analysis (cont.) Amount reduced under the IDEA MOE provision in IDEA §613(a)(2)(c) during SY – 4,393 LEAs (29.5%) reduced MOE – $325,460 was the average amount reduced under the IDEA MOE provision

33 Preliminary Analysis (cont.) MOE reduction – 12,280 LEAs (82.4%) were eligible to reduce MOE – (1) had an increase in IDEA 611 allocations from FFY 2008 to FFY 2009; and – (2) received a determination of "meets requirements“. – 4,322 LEAs (35.2%) of those eligible actually reduced MOE

34 Preliminary Analysis (cont.) LEAs required to use 15% of IDEA 611 and 619 funds for CEIS due to significant disproportionality in SY – 299 LEAs were required to use 15% of funds for CEIS due to significant disproportionality – 2.0 percent of LEAs were required to use 15% of funds for CEIS due to significant disproportionality

35 Preliminary Analysis (cont.) LEAs voluntarily used up to 15% of IDEA 611 and 619 funds for CEIS in SY – 1,596 LEAs voluntarily used up to 15% of IDEA 611 and 619 funds for CEIS – 10.7 percent of LEAs voluntarily used up to 15% of IDEA 611 and 619 funds for CEIS

36 Preliminary Analysis (cont.) Children receiving CEIS – 1,044,435 children received CEIS during SY – 119,665 children received CEIS anytime in the past two school years and received special education and related services in SY
