Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS)

 

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) permits, and sometimes requires, local educational agencies (LEAs) to use Part B funds under the "coordinated, early intervening services (CEIS)" set-aside.

CEIS funds may be used for students in grades Kindergarten through grade 12, with a particular emphasis on students in kindergarten through grade 3 and include:
  • Professional development for teachers and other school staff for the delivery of scientifically based academic instruction and behavioral interventions, including scientifically based literacy instruction and instruction in the use of adaptive and instructional software, and 
  • Providing educational and behavioral evaluations, services and supports. 34 CFR 300.226(b)
Any LEA that uses Part B funds for coordinated early intervening services must annually report to the state education agency on:
  • The number of students served by coordinated early intervening services, and
  • The number of students served by coordinated early intervening services who subsequently receive special education and related services during the preceding two-year period. 34 CFR 300.226(d)

IDEA CEIS funds may be used to supplement, but not supplant, activities funded with and carried out under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). 34 CFR 300.226(e)
