State-by-state data on LEA MOE reductions and CEIS use

Here you will find the information submitted by state departments of education to the U.S. Dept. of Education regarding reduction to local spending (maintenance of effort or MOE) and use of federal IDEA funds for Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) for each school district for the 2009 fiscal year. Nationwide, local school districts (LEAs) reduced spending on special education by $1.5 billion in 2009.

This information is important because it indicates if school districts reduced local spending in light of IDEA Recovery Act funds in FY 2009. IDEA does not require that local districts replace these funds when the Recovery funds run out, putting services for students with disabilities at risk.
