Cyclical Monitoring

Cyclical Monitoring as part of the Integrated Monitoring System

One-fifth of the public agencies are monitored each year beginning with the 2011-2012 school year. All public agencies will be monitored during the State Performance Plan (SPP) cycle, ending with the 2016-2017 school year. Cyclical monitoring is conducted using the Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment, and through Sampling Indicators 8 and 14.

Data Collection Cycle for Cyclical Monitoring

Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment and Indicator 11

The Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment is conducted by each public agency and assesses the public agency's implementation of special education requirements. The assessment uses samples of students' individualized education program (IEP) records and other sources. The self-assessment includes selected requirements of IDEA 2004 and state law, which are closely related to improving student outcomes and the IDEA State Performance Plan indicators.

The self-assessments are conducted in the fall of each year and results are reported to the WDPI in November. All noncompliance must be corrected as soon as possible, but no later than one year after identification. WDPI verifies correction of all identified noncompliance.

Data on Indicator 11 is collected through the Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment. For more detailed information about the Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment, click on the link in the title above.

Sampling Indicators 8 and 14

Data collection for the sampling indicators in the State Performance Plan (SPP) is aligned with the Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment cycle. When districts participate in the Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment, they also participate in the data collections for Indicators 8 and 14. The results are reported in the Annual Performance Report (APR) to the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) on February 1.
