IDEA-B Maintenance of Effort (MOE) is a federal requirement for any local educational agency (LEA, which includes ISDs and open-enrollment charter schools) that receives IDEA-B funds to spend at least the same amount of state and/or local funds for special education expenditures that was spent in the most recent prior year the LEA was compliant with MOE (unless the LEA qualifies for exceptions and/or adjustment).
Information regarding MOE may be found on TEA's website:
