Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed House Bill 3427, the Student Success Act, into law on May 20, 2019. The Act funds three accounts: the Early Learning Account; the Student Investment Account; and the Statewide Education Initiatives.
The Early Learning Account provides funding for Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE) to reach adequate service levels for children with disabilities, ages birth to five, and their families. Here are some resources regarding the Student Success Act and the Early Learning Account. Check back often for updates!
Oregon’s Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE) Services provides a seamless system to support the developmental and educational needs of children ages birth to five and their families. EI/ECSE programs ensure that children who qualify for special education receive a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) as required in the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA).
Evaluations and screenings are free for children ages birth to five.
Children found to be eligible for Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education receive free services.
The local EI/ECSE program can provide a free screening and/or evaluation for children ages birth to five. Screenings help to look at a child’s development and whether special education supports can help to build skills to further the child’s individual developmental progress.
The State Interagency Coordinating Council (SICC) of Oregon is a council appointed by the Governor to advise and assist the state. Our purpose is to support quality services for young children with disabilities and their families.
