Objective 1
Objective 1

Participants will gain a working understanding and increased capacity for accountability mechanisms and reporting on the correction of identified noncompliance


Objective 1 cont d
Objective 1 (cont’d)

I. Accountability for Correcting Identified Noncompliance

  • APR Reporting

    1) Compliance Indicators

    • Indicators C9/B15

    • Overview/Descriptions

  • Other Accountability Mechanisms

    • Audits

    • Special Conditions



Objective 2
Objective 2

Participants will gain a working understanding and increased capacity for substantial compliance and the reporting requirements for the correction of identified noncompliance for compliance Indicators


Objective 2 cont d
Objective 2 (cont’d)

  • Reporting on Correction of Identified Noncompliance in Compliance Indicators

    • Describe the verification of correction of identified noncompliance in accordance with OSEP Memo 09-02 (2-Prong Review Process)

    • Numbers do not have to align with Indicators B15 and C9 but explain if they do not

    • Include subsequent correction up to the date of APR submission

    • Include program-specific follow-up activities (including enforcement/sanctions) for uncorrected findings

      • Report what has been done, not what is planned to be done


Objective 2 cont d1
Objective 2 (cont’d)

  • If an LEA or EIP did not correct identified noncompliance in a timely manner (within one year of identification), the State must report in the APR whether the identified noncompliance was subsequently corrected by the time the States submits the APR.

  • Further, if an LEA or EIP is not yet correctly implementing the statutory/regulatory requirement(s), the State must explain in the APR what they have done to identify the cause(s) of continuing noncompliance, and what is being done about the continued lack of compliance, including, as appropriate, enforcement actions taken against the LEA or EIP.


Objective 2 cont d2
Objective 2 (cont’d)

  • Substantial Compliance

    • For purposes of OSEP determinations

    • 95% +

    • 75% + with correction of all previously identified noncompliance

    • < 75% cannot be substantial compliance

    • OSEP considers subsequent correction when issuing determinations

      • Except for Indicators C9 and B15

Part C Examples

Indicator c1 correction over multiple years
Indicator C1Correction over Multiple Years


Objective 3
Objective 3

Participants will understand the reporting requirements for the correction of identified noncompliance for Indicators B15 and C9 in the Annual Performance Report (APR)


Objective 3 cont d
Objective 3 (cont’d)

  • Reporting on the correction of identified noncompliance in Indicators B15 and C9

    • Describe Findings

    • States may choose to group individual instances of noncompliance in an LEA or EIS program if they involve the same legal requirement or standard

      • If instances of noncompliance are grouped, States must ensure correction of individual instances when possible

      • Findings identified through a State complaint process or due process hearing must be counted as an individual finding


Objective 3 cont d1
Objective 3 (cont’d)

  • States may choose to report each individual instance of noncompliance as a separate finding

  • Subsequent correction must be reported

    • Correction that was not made within the one-year timeline

  • Report instances of subsequent correction separately from the instances of timely correction of identified noncompliance


Objective 3 cont d2
Objective 3 (cont’d)

  • Report follow-up activities (including sanctions and enforcements) for program-specific noncompliance for each program with uncorrected noncompliance

  • Report what has been done, not what is planned or could be done


Objective 3 cont d3
Objective 3 (cont’d)

  • Definition of Finding

  • A written notification from the State to an LEA or EIS program that includes a conclusion that the LEA or EIS program is in noncompliance

  • Must include

    • the citation of the statute or regulation

    • a description of the quantitative and/or qualitative data supporting the conclusion that there is noncompliance


Objective 3 cont d4
Objective 3 (cont’d)

  • For SPP and APR indicators, monitoring inquiries, and dispute resolution findings for which correction can be completed for individual instances, State reports each instance of noncompliance as a finding.

  • For SPP and APR indicators, monitoring inquiries, and dispute resolution findings for which correction cannot be completed for individual instances (i.e., timelines), State groups individual instances of noncompliance into one finding for which the district must demonstrate compliance.


Objective 3 cont d5
Objective 3 (cont’d)

  • OSEP Memo 09-02 Language Regarding Verification of Correction

    • In order to demonstrate that previously identified noncompliance has been corrected, an SEA/LA must:

      • Account for the correction of all child-specific instances of noncompliance; and

      • Determine whether each of the Schools or Programs with the identified noncompliance are correctly implementing the specific regulatory requirements


Objective 3 cont d6
Objective 3 (cont’d)

  • Reporting on Correction in Indicators B15 and C9

  • Include Subsequent Correction

    • Report subsequent correction separately from timely correction

    • Report program-specific (for each program with uncorrected noncompliance) follow-up activities including sanctions and enforcements

    • Report what has been done, not what is planned or could be done (past tense)

Discussion questions
Discussion Questions

  • What does your OSEP Response Table say about correction of noncompliance?

  • Has OSEP identified any other issues with correction of noncompliance?

  • Is there any language in your SPP/APR that could be revised to be clearer for next year’s submission?
