As required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the agreement delineates the provision and funding of services required by federal or state law or assigned by state policy. The areas covered by this agreement include coordination of services, agency financial responsibility, conditions and terms of reimbursement, and resolution of interagency disputes.
