Coordinated Early Intervening Services

Project Forum, a federally funded project of the National Association of State Directors of Special Education, has released a new publication (pdf) on coordinated early intervening services. Districts are allowed to use part of their federal special education dollars on early intervening services for children who are not in special education, but who need extra academic or behavior help to do well in school.

In addition to Project Forum's excellent efforts, please check out a recent article I wrote on CEIS, as well as a blog post that discussed the topic.
