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 2019-20 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.
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 2019-20. Non-monitored LEAs may use this site to prepare and organize documentation so that they will be ready for future monitoring.
ESEA Monitoring Webinar
DPI hosted a webinar on October 28th, 2019 to help LEAs prepare for 19-20 ESEA Monitoring. See the below links for a list of the ESEA Monitoring Webinar resources:
CESAs are a valuable resource for LEAs that need assistance preparing for ESEA monitoring. LEAs may contact their CESA Title 1 Network Coordinator for support.
