What We Do
Special education provides vision, leadership, and expertise to schools and offices regarding the implementation of curricular and instructional initiatives that support the achievement of students with disabilities in compliance with state and federal mandates.
The department of compliance has a responsibility, under federal statute and regulations, to have a system of general supervision that monitors the implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) by local education agencies, or school districts. The system is accountable for enforcing the requirements and for ensuring continuous improvement. The primary focus of federal and state monitoring activities are to improve educational results and functional outcomes for all children with disabilities and ensure that states meet the program requirements under this part, with a particular emphasis on those requirements that are closely related to improving educational results for children with disabilities.
