Rhonda Weiss Center for Accessible IDEA Data (Weiss Center)

The Rhonda Weiss Center for Accessible IDEA Data improves state capacity to report Part B and Part C Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) data in accessible formats.

The Weiss Center, along with trusted partners, works closely with states to help them deal with challenges related to making IDEA data accessible.

The services delivered by the Weiss Center will benefit state education agencies in the following ways:

  • Improve knowledge about accessibility needs, standards, best practices, and how to apply them.
  • Build skills and competency needed to make state-level data more accessible in dynamic formats.
  • Enhance ability to sharing knowledge about accessibility with other states, local education agencies (LEAs), and early intervention (EI) programs.
  • Increase access to data by people who have historically been excluded. This will improve data quality due to broader data use and analysis.
