Monitoring - Continuous Improvement Monitoring Process (CIMP)

The Continuous Improvement Monitoring Process is a critical component of the Colorado Department of Education's general supervision requirements under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004.

The new requirements of P. L. 105-17, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act has posed many challenges and opportunities for the Colorado Department of Education staff and school districts throughout Colorado. Major efforts have enabled general and special education staff to move forward in improving results for students with disabilities, including (a) the establishment of the Colorado Steering Committee for the Continuous Improvement of Early Childhood and Special Education Programs; and (b) a clear articulation of goals and objectives to enhance Colorado schools and communities, especially in the context of Colorado special education.
