To meet the requirements of IDEA, every year each LEA must expend a proportionate share of federal IDEA funds on equitable services for parentally placed private school children with disabilities. This session will review the responsibilities of SEAs for ensuring LEAs implement child find, timely and meaningful consultation with representatives of parentally placed private school children with disabilities, and the provision of equitable services. NCSI staff will provide examples of how states meet these requirements and potential pitfalls.
This session will serve as a continuation from the IDEA Fiscal Forum 2020 Virtual Edition. Note, that prior attendance during the virtual IFF is not required.
