This webpage references the on-site monitoring visit. However, during the 2020-21 school year, the on-site monitoring visit will be a virtual meeting rather than in-person.
LEAs that are selected for monitoring must complete and submit the required documentation prior to their scheduled on-site visit. The total amount of required documentation may vary depending on both the type and quantity of funding received by the LEA. The following resources will aid LEAs in constructing and submitting their documents to the DPI.
ESEA Monitoring Guidance Document:
LEAs may access the 2020-21 ESEA Monitoring Guidance Document here. This document provides LEAs with all the information required to prepare for their monitoring site visit. DPI has included detailed descriptions of mandatory items as well as guiding questions that will help LEAs correctly prepare each piece of required documentation. The guidance document also includes the contact information for DPI staff who can provide assistance in completing the pre-visit requirements.
Prior Year Guidance Documents:
Documentation Collection Tool:
DPI has set up a google site that will allow LEAs to submit their required documentation into a Google drive folder that is shared between both parties. The LEA will submit all required documentation for ESEA Monitoring through the collection tool. For information on how to use the document collection tool, see the ESEA Monitoring Document Submission Procedures.
DPI has also created a google site for districts that are not being monitored in 2020-21. Non-monitored LEAs may use this site to prepare and organize documentation so that they will be ready for future monitoring.
ESEA Monitoring Webinar Resources:
DPI held an informational webinar on Thursday, November 19th, 2020 to help LEAs prepare for 20-21 ESEA Monitoring. Here are links to the video, presentation slides, and answers to questions posed by LEAs during the webinar.
