As required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Governor of Arizona has established a State Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) for Infants and Toddlers made up of family members, providers, state agency representatives and other community members.
The ICC advises and assists the Department of Economic Security, Arizona Early Intervention Program (DES/AzEIP), and its partner agencies to administer, promote, coordinate and improve early intervention for families and professionals. The purpose of the ICC is to advise and assist the Department of Economic Security (DES), as lead agency for early intervention in Arizona in the following areas:
- The development and implementation of early intervention policies.
- The full participation, coordination and cooperation of all appropriate public agencies in early intervention.
- Seeking information about any federal, state or local policies that facilitate and/or impede timely service delivery and taking steps to ensure that any policy, rule or statute problems are resolved.
The ICC may establish committees to assist in accomplishing its duties and responsibilities. An ICC member shall chair committees. Membership on committees, other than the Executive Committee, is open to interested people who are not members of the ICC. Interested individuals shall apply for membership on a committee. The Executive Committee shall review committee applications and determine committee membership. To the extent possible, the membership of the committee shall represent the ethnic and geographic characteristics of the state’s population. The ICC shall review the purpose, progress and membership of each committee annually to ensure that the committees align with the ICC and the Part C program’s strategic priorities and goals. Committees may change based on the needs of the current ICC board, needs of the Lead agency and community.
The ICC and committees of the ICC may also establish short-term ad hoc committees or work groups to accomplish specific tasks. Ad hoc committee membership shall be appointed by the appropriate chairperson (Council or committee) and is open to interested individuals, whether or not they are members of the Council. All committee meetings must be announced and open to the public consistent with the requirements of the open meeting law
