Format: Guides and BriefsA State Guide on Identifying, Correcting, and Reporting Noncompliance with IDEA Requirements
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires states to monitor and enforce IDEA Part C and Part B requirements, with a primary focus on those requirements that are most closely related to improving results and functional outcomes for infants, toddlers, and children with disabilities. To support states to carry out these monitoring responsibilities, A State Guide on Identifying, Correcting, and Reporting Noncompliance with IDEA Requirements describes the IDEA requirements related to identifying noncompliance, making findings of noncompliance, correcting and verifying correction of noncompliance, and federal reporting on compliance and correction of noncompliance in the state’s SPP/APR. This guide 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.
This companion resource to A State Guide on Identifying, Correcting, and Reporting Noncompliance with IDEA Requirements summarizes the responsibilities of local early intervention programs or Local Education Agency, state Lead Agency or State Educational Agency and data that needs to be reported to OSEP on compliance, correction of noncompliance and verification of correction for SPP/APR indicators.
