Developing a Corrective Action Plan, Step 10
Step 10: Work with self-assessment ad hoc committee to develop corrective actions.
The WDPI strongly recommends self-assessment results and proposed corrective actions be reviewed with the agency's ad hoc self-assessment committee prior to submitting a corrective action plan to WDPI. So, at this point in the process, it is appropriate to convene a meeting to review the results and proposed CAP activities with your committee.
Inputting A Corrective Action Plan into the Electronic Reporting System, Saving, and Submitting, Steps 11-13
Step 11: Complete Section III, Enter Corrective Actions Necessary to Correct Noncompliance.
After meeting with your ad hoc self-assessment committee, you will return to the electronic report to input corrective actions.
When the program has identified individual student errors that must be corrected as soon as possible, the WDPI has developed a specific and nonalterable action the public agency is required to take for each student whose record was out of compliance. For example, if you enter 1 or more student records not in compliance with I-18, which requires a child to receive services required by his or her IEP, then the program will note that for all individual records reviewed and found to be out of compliance, the agency must consider compensatory services. You must take this action for all students whose records were reviewed and found to be out of compliance as soon as possible.
You and your ad hoc committee will have flexibility with regard to corrective actions necessary to correct noncompliance and ensure continuing compliance with requirements. The WDPI suggests corrective actions that, based on public agency experience during the last monitoring cycle, are likely to correct the noncompliance. Of course, public agencies may also develop additional action steps that reflect their unique needs and experiences.
The end result of Step 11 is two separate lists: one list of corrective actions that a public agency must take to bring into compliance those individual student records reviewed and found to be out of compliance and one list of corrective actions, developed by the public agency, that addresses current compliance with requirements.
Step 12: Save and print final copy of the Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment Report and Corrective Action Plan Summary for district records.
The next-to-the-last step is for the public agency to save their report for public agency records – either electronically or hard copy.
Step 13: Upload electronic recording forms.
This year, LEAs are required to submit their electronic recording forms to DPI as part of the self-assessment process. DPI reviews the forms to ensure accuracy of data and uses the forms to randomly select students for validation or verification.
You will upload procedural compliance self-assessment recording forms from the Main Menu of the procedural compliance self-assessment application.
You will need to select the file type (for example, evaluation recording form) and then browse your computer to find the corresponding excel spreadsheet. There is no need to rename files before you upload. Once you select the file, it will be saved to a database. If you subsequently update your recording form or forms, you must delete one file before you can add another.
Step 14: Submit! Submission Deadline is November 15.
You must enter data and corrective action plans, and lock the report by November 15. Timely reporting is one of the indicators that affects LEA Determinations.
