State Monitoring Considerations Worksheet
This template is designed to help state education agencies (SEAs) describe and document how they monitor Local Education Agency (LEA) implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The considerations included in this template are designed to support SEAs and ensure their written monitoring descriptions are detailed and comprehensive, including specifying how monitoring activities interact with other components of their general supervision system. Not everything in this template is a required activity but is included to provide states with a variety of methods in which they can consider monitoring as they design, update, or review their system. By considering and responding to the questions and considerations in this worksheet, states can reflect on their monitoring system and identify opportunities for refinement and improvement.
