Federal and State Monitoring


The Office of Federal and State Monitoring will periodically monitor each LEA(district) and selected schools to determine if the district and schools are in compliance regarding the programmatic and fiscal implementation of supplemental sources of funds.

A team of monitors shall conduct site visits to:

  • Determine whether the evaluation conducted by the public school/LEA was conducted properly;
  • Assess the areas in which the school or LEA needs to revise its plan;
  • Review the school/LEA’s performance during the preceding two years, including the documented academic performance of its students;
  • Review the use of public school funding under the Public School Funding Act of 2003, Ark. Code 6-20-2301 et. Seq. (i.e., Categorical Funding);
  • Conduct a review of the LEA's internal controls regarding the Assurances.
