NCSI Podcast – General Soup: Mail Bag Episode!
This episode of NCSI's "General Soup" podcast is our first-ever Mail Bag Episode! In this episode, Susan and Sara respond to general supervision questions from our listeners including, for example:
- What does an effective and efficient monitoring system look like?
- What is the intent of Memo 09-02 and what are examples of effective implementation of the requirement to verify correction of non-compliance?
- What is RDA and why are some states embracing a results orientation to their general supervision system?
We also share some related NCSI resources to support states in designing and implementing genearl supervision systems that improve outcomes for students with disabilities while ensuring compliance with IDEA. And last (but not least), Sara and Susan dish up two exciting new soup recipes!
Episode Show Notes
- A State Guide on Identifying, Correcting, and Reporting Noncompliance in Accordance with IDEA Requirements: This guide for Part C lead agencies (LAs) and and state education agencies (SEAs) is based on the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) Memo 09-02: Reporting on Correction of Noncompliance in the Annual Performance Report Required under Sections 616 and 642 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and the OSEP Frequently Asked Questions on Identifying and Correcting Noncompliance and Reporting on Correction in the SPP/APR. The guide, jointly developed by NCSI, ECTA, DASY, and IDC, provides states with a description of the expected actions for states related to identifying, requiring and verifying correction of, and reporting noncompliance.
- A Visual Guide to Identifying, Correcting, and Reporting Noncompliance with IDEA Requirements: This is a visual representation of the expected actions for states related to identifying, requiring and verifying correction of, and reporting noncompliance. Detailed descriptions and additional guidance is provided in the companion document (see above).
- Fast Five: Five Lessons Learned from States in Designing and Implementing Results-Based Accountability and Support Systems: As states have made these types of shifts to their general supervision systems and embraced a results driven orientation, they have learned lessons along the way about what has worked well and what has been challenging. In the fall of 2020, the NCSI RBAS team interviewed five states who have implemented results-based accountability and support systems to learn more about their experiences and to ask what advice they would offer other states interested in creating similarly results-focused general supervision systems. What follows is a list of their five “lessons learned.” We express our sincere gratitude to Colorado, Indiana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Vermont for sharing their insights with us.
