Data Collection and Record Keeping
Under the IDEA data collection requirement, LEAs must gather and maintain data on children with disabilities enrolled by their parents in private schools and submit the data to the appropriate SEA. LEAs must collect information about the number of children
determined to be children with disabilities; and
Collecting this data will provide valuable information regarding the extent and scope of the equitable services provision under IDEA and assist in ensuring that parentally placed children with disabilities are able to participate equitably in IDEA.
