Special Education Directors,
ESS/Program Support and Monitoring (PSM) is proud to announce the release of the SY 2022–2023 Programmatic Monitoring Guide Steps. Additionally, is the release memo indicating some of the recent updates. The guide steps are a technical assistance document created to aid PEAs in understanding the requirements specific to programmatic monitoring. Legal compliance, as it relates to a state complaint or due process, may be more extensive. Examples included are intended to provide additional clarification and understanding on how to apply a compliance lens to a student’s evaluation or IEP. These examples should not be taken directly and added to a unique student’s IEP or evaluation, because each student is unique and has his/her own set of circumstances that must be addressed through his/her individual evaluation and IEP.
ESS hopes these guide steps, and the examples, assist PEAs to review created student documents for compliance purposes and assist in the review of systemic, programmatic needs within the PEA.
For questions about the SY 2022—2023 Programmatic Monitoring Guide Steps or programmatic monitoring in general, please contact your PEA’s assigned PSM specialist.
