OSERS seeks public input regarding IDEA data collection, technical assistance to states

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 26, 2018) — The U.S. Department of Education announced it would seek input from the public regarding some data required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) April 24.

The department’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) will gather feedback from the public until May 24, 2018 on how best to provide technical assistance to states when it comes to collecting and reporting data required by IDEA Part B, Section 618 and Section 616.

State educational agencies (SEAs) and state lead agencies (LAs) currently receive technical assistance on IDEA Part B and C data collection through OSERS-reserved funds under IDEA Part B Section 616(i).
