A Toolkit for IDEA Part C and Part B 619 Stakeholders
State lead agencies for IDEA Part C (early intervention) and Part B 619 (early childhood special education) programs partner with stakeholders for a variety of purposes, including collaborating on program improvement initiatives and preparing annual reports on program implementation. Data play a role in virtually every aspect of the administration of IDEA Part C and Part B 619 programs. This toolkit provides Part C and Part B 619 stakeholders with an orientation to IDEA data and other data-related topics to help them meaningfully participate in conversations about important programmatic issues and decisions.
- Part C and 619 staff are encouraged to share this toolkit with stakeholders as a self-guided resource and/or use it with stakeholders in a facilitated manner.
- Stakeholders can build upon the introductory knowledge gained from using this toolkit by seeking opportunities to learn more about their states’ IDEA data.
- Participating in conversations about how their state collects, analyzes, and uses data to improve results for children and families will provide stakeholders with a deeper understanding of the topics addressed in this toolkit.
- The Introduction (first tile below) provides general information on how to use the toolkit. Please start there!
