Special Education Monitoring

The primary focus of state monitoring activities is on improving educational results and functional outcomes for all children with disabilities; and ensuring that local education agencies(LEA) meet the program requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA), with a particular emphasis on those requirements that are most closely related to improving educational results for children with disabilities. As a result, Vermont has a general supervision system that monitors implementation of IDEA by early intervention programs and LEAs statewide. [IDEA 2004, Section 616(a)(2)]

Overall, Vermont's general supervision system includes multiple methods to ensure implementation of IDEA 2004, identify and correct noncompliance, facilitate improvement, and support practices that improve results and functional outcomes for children and families.
