Grants Administration
Fiscal Compliance Special Education for ISDs and Charter Schools: Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Fiscal Year 2018 Compliance Analysis

Fiscal and Programmatic topics related to the administration of grants

Important Session Information:

This is the version for attending in person. If you wish to attend via ZOOM (webinar), please register for session #55712 instead.


Maintenance of Effort (MOE) is a federal fiscal requirement for any local educational agency (LEA, which includes independent school districts and open-enrollment charter schools), that receives Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Part B (IDEA-B) funds.

The MOE requirement is applicable as well to members of a special education shared services arrangement (SSA) whose Fiscal Agent receives the IDEA-B funds on their behalf.

This free workshop will provide participants an opportunity to determine their Fiscal Year 2018 IDEA-B MOE Preliminary Compliance.

All participants will have an opportunity to perform a guided hands-on activity for understanding how to determine preliminary compliance, using sample data.

ESC-20 will also provide one set of LEA-specific data reports for each Region 20 LEA represented (if you register by March 18, 2019).

If you are from an LEA outside of Region 20, please contact Denise Dusek for a list of documents to bring to the workshop, if you are interested in using local data for the compliance analysis.

Please bring your laptop to the workshop. Laptops will be provided for participants who are unable to bring their own.

Lunch on your own.
