Kansas Integrated Accountability System (KIAS)

The Early Childhood, Special Education, and Title Services (ECSETS) Team monitors federal and state programs utilizing the KIAS cycle of continuous data collection, reporting, verification, and improvement. ECSETS monitors to ensure both state- and district-level compliance with federal and state program requirements. To help facilitate communication between district staff and KSDE staff, each district is assigned an ECSETS consultant who serves as a District Contact.

According to 34 C.F.R. § 300.646 of the regulations implementing the IDEA, States must collect and examine data to determine whether significant disproportionality based on race or ethnicity is occurring in each local education agency (LEA) with respect to the identification of children as children with disabilities, including: (1) identification of children as children with disabilities; (2) identification of children as children with a particular disability; (3) placement of children with disabilities in particular educational settings; and (4) incidence, duration, and type of disciplinary actions, including suspensions and expulsions.
Procedure: The determination as to whether a LEA has significant disproportionality is based on an analysis of numerical information only, and may not include consideration of LEA’s policies, practices, or procedures. Kansas uses data collected in the SPEDPro and KIAS web applications to determine significant disproportionality. Districts may view the significant disproportionality data analysis, at both the LEA, as part of the Kansas APR Annual Reports website, http://ddesurvey.com/kansasAPR/login.aspx.
Mandatory Actions: If a district has been identified with significant disproportionality, the State must: (1) require the district to reserve the maximum amount of IDEA Part B funds (15%) for Comprehensive Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CCEIS) to address the factors contributing to the significant disproportionality; (2) provide for the annual review and, if appropriate, revision of policies, practices, and procedures related to the discipline, identification, or placement of children with disabilities; (3) require the LEA to publicly report on the revision of policies, practices, and procedures; and (4) restrict the LEA from using the 50% reduction rule to reduce Maintenance of Effort (MOE).
Timeline: Districts with significant disproportionality are generally notified in the late spring or early summer of each year.
