IEA Information for Parents & Students

The  Individualized  Education  Account  (IEA)  Program  is  a  school  choice  program  for   eligible  students  with  disabilities.  The  IEA  Program  gives  parents  and students access  to  public  education  funds  to  use  on certain  types  of  approved  educational  expenses  that  best  meet  their  own  unique  needs.  

The 2022-23 IEA Account Holder Handbook provides the most comprehensive information for parents about the IEA Program, including student eligibility, how to enroll a student in the IEA Program, the rights and responsibilities of account holders, how IEA funds can be used, and much more.

More information on the IEA Program can be found on the menu bar on the left side of the screen.
