Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
State and federal laws say that all children with disabilities have a right to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). Special education includes classroom programs and other types of services that are designed especially for children with various types of disabilities. In Michigan, special education services shall be provided to eligible students from BIRTH through age 25, or until graduation from high school.
Special education monitoring is a mandated function of each Michigan intermediate school district. The monitoring focuses on a dual system of compliance and continuous improvement activities. The Continuous Improvement & Monitoring System-2 (CIMS-2) is the revised system used to analyze and interpret data and to ensure compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) of 2004 and the Michigan Administrative Rules for Special Education. This process is based on priorities established in the IDEA 2004 and the State Performance Plan (SPP). The CIMS-2 process is implemented through an electronic workbook.
