IDEA MOE for Compliance Standard – OPEN: April 7 – DUE DATE: May 21

Public Schools Only

IDEA Part B Special Education Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Application for Compliance Standard for school year 2019-2020 opens April 7. The report may be accessed within the NDE Portal under the Data Collection tab. An activation code obtained from the District Administrator is needed to access the collection in the Portal.

School district receipt of IDEA dollars is contingent upon maintaining fiscal effort for Special Education. Districts must expend a greater or equal amount of local or local/state funds from a previous year highest level to meet the MOE requirement. Final calculations based on actual special education school district expenditures/receipts/data obtained from the 2019-2020 AFR, GMS and ADVISER are available and have been compared to the highest levels of fiscal effort. As a result, calculations for meeting the IDEA MOE Compliance Standard may have resulted in a MOE excess or shortage that requires school district review for determination of adjustments or credits that could modify the MOE level.
