The Exceptional Children's Educational Act (ECEA) defines "monitoring" as:

Each AU shall comply with all applicable state and federal laws and regulations regarding the program plan, identification and special educational services for gifted students.

Monitoring activities shall include:

  • A review of the annual enrollment and student performance reports;
  • A planned comprehensive on-site procedure integrated with the continuous improvement and gifted education review process in the Department of Education; and
  • Follow-up activities including the provision of technical assistance in areas of non-compliance and verification that areas of non-compliance have been corrected.


Description

The AU conducts ongoing monitoring for the following indicators:

  • Annual Plan (UIP)
  • Comprehensive Program Plan (CPP)
  • Gifted student enrollment
  • Gifted student performance

CDE conducts ongoing monitoring:

Every five years, the AU participates in the Gifted Education Monitoring (GEM) process.  GEM is a planned comprehensive on-site procedure designed to be a collaborative monitoring process that is the shared responsibility of the AU, CDE and the Gifted Education Regional Consultant (GERC).  The purpose of this partnership is to increase the capacity of educators and educational systems to identify, program and be accountable for gifted learner achievement and growth.
