Compliance Monitoring

In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Chapters 14 and 15 of the State Board Regulations, PDE provides general supervision over all public schools, school districts, and other public education agencies within the state to ensure that each student with a disability receives a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) and that each family has the benefits of a system of procedural safeguards. 

One way the State ensures compliance is through compliance monitoring. Cyclical compliance monitoring is conducted every six years among all public school districts and charter schools. EASD participated in this process during the 2014-2015 school year.
