BIE develops linkages and contacts with external service providers and partners such as IHS, Tribal and State Vocational Rehabilitation, BIA and Tribal Correctional Facilities, BIA Juvenile Detention Centers, Tribal Law Enforcement, Tribal Community Colleges, Head Start, Early Start, and State Department of Health and State Department of Education regarding service coordination. 3. BIE develops linkages and contacts with internal service providers and departments such as FACE and Baby FACE, REPP, JDC, General Education Initiatives, Education Line Offices, and BIE Funded Schools regarding the coordination of services. 4. The BIE informs the Line Offices and BIE funded schools of any policy and procedure changes as a result of federal legislation that impact the coordination of services. 5. BIE collects and analyzes data regarding the coordination of services at the local level through the special education monitoring process (self assessment tool and LEA Special Education Policies and Procedures).
