SUBJECT:  2012-2013 Federal Program Monitoring Schedule

The purpose of this memo is to notify certain school divisions that they will receive an on-site or desk federal program monitoring for the 2012-2013 academic year for Title I, Part A, Improving Basic Programs Operated by Local Educational Agencies; Title I, Part C, Education of Migratory Children; Title I, Part D, Prevention and Intervention for Neglected, Delinquent or At-Risk; Title III, Part A, Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students; and Title X, Part C, McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Program. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), requires states to monitor school divisions for compliance in certain program areas.  As a result of this requirement, school divisions are monitored on a five-year cycle in Virginia.   

In preparation for the monitoring, the Office of Program Administration and Accountability will host an informational session via webinar on Thursday, October 25, 2012, from 1-2 p.m. The purpose of the webinar is to familiarize school divisions with the federal program monitoring document that has been revised based on the provisions of the ESEA flexibility waiver. Please use the following information to join the webinar.
