Monitoring Procedures

The Arkansas Department of Education, Special Education Unit (ADE-SEU) monitoring system is designed to: a) ensure Local Education Agencies (LEA) comply with Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) requirements b) identify compliance barriers that may negatively impact student results, and c) identify technical assistance needs.  To assist ADE-SEU in determining a district’s level of monitoring and technical assistance needs, a more formalized process for determining risk has been developed that incorporates a number of variables.
