Join in Department of Student Services ThoughtExchange

September 13, 2021

Cincinnati Public Schools' Department of Student Services invites you to join a conversation on the district's IDEA-B budget. Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides assistance to states to support the needs of children with disabilities. This may include costs for intervention specialists, related service providers, materials or supplies for use with children with disabilities.

Section 2014(a) of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) provided IDEA Part B supplemental funding for Federal Fiscal Year 2021 to assist states in providing special education and related services to children with disabilities. 

The survey asks this question: "What should the district priorities be for spending the additional American Rescue Plan (ARP) allocation to IDEA-B funds for the 2021-22 school year?"
