Equitable Services - IDEA Grant Set-Aside Requirement - Webinar

Intended Audience: Superintendents, Directors of Special Education, Business Office Staff, and CESA staff.

In the IDEA regulations, districts are responsible for calculating and expending a proportionate share of their flow-through and preschool allocations on parentally-placed private school children who are eligible for special education services. The entire amount that must be set-aside must be spent on equitable services.

The calculation that must be used to determine an LEA’s equitable services set-aside is directed by the regulations. The regulations are also clear that IDEA funds must be used before local funds are used for equitable services.

Equitable services will be a focus of DPI's external monitoring of LEAs. Not implementing these requirements will result in non-compliance and may lead to a repayment of funds.

This webinar will focus on how to do the calculation, what data must be used to do the calculation, how the funds may be spent and frequently asked questions on implementation of the requirement.

This webinar is presented by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's Special Education Team.
