OUR CORE FUNCTIONS
We establish policy guidance and frameworks to govern the provision of early intervention and special education, including actions in response to new legislative policies, and transparent and ongoing communication with stakeholders.
We set clear expectations for implementing the federal and state regulations, policies, procedures, and practices that ensure State and local compliance and maximize development and learning for all children and students.
We monitor and provide performance support to programs in an effective, efficient, and systematic manner that builds and sustains State, local, and stakeholder capacity.
We ensure efficient and transparent use of federal, State, and special funds through innovative, layered funding mechanisms to leverage the full complement of dollars to maximize the benefit for children and families receiving services.
