IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act)
The federal law governing special education, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), provides funding for specially designed instruction for students with disabilities and the monitoring of their progress.
Funding is distributed to school districts based on the number of students with Individualized Education Programs.
How funds can be used
IDEA funds are used to provide early intervention, special education and related services, including assistive technology. Up to 15% of IDEA funds can be used to purchase Response-to-Intervention materials.
