Who? • ALL students NEW to TUSD since May 2, 2005,MUST have this form in the cumulative folder within 45 days of enrollment.
Who? • Think of it as a General Ed. function that the Exceptional Education Department is accountable for compliance.
ADE Monitoring • April, 2005 – found out of compliance at most schools visited • End of May, 2005 – compliance had improved but not all schools visited were aware • Fall, 2006 – We want to remain compliant!
ADE Monitoring • If we are found out of compliance again, TUSD will lose significant funding. :-(
