How should LEAs prepare for monitoring?

This webpage references the on-site monitoring visit. However, during the 2021-22 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 2021-22 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:

2020-21 ESEA Monitoring Guidance Document

Documentation Collection Tool:

DPI has set up a Google site that will allow LEAs selected for monitoring 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.  

LEAs not being monitored may make a copy of this Google Drive and use it to organize and file their documentation for ESEA requirements. For details visit ESEA Monitoring Record Keeping for Non-Monitored LEAs.

ESEA Monitoring Webinar Resources:

DPI held an informational webinar on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 to help LEAs prepare for 21-22 ESEA Monitoring.  Here are links to the video and presentation slides.  

CESA Support:

CESAs are a valuable resource for LEAs that need assistance preparing for ESEA monitoring. LEAs may contact their CESA Title I Network Coordinator for support.
