Annual Programmatic Monitoring

In accordance with 2 CFR 200.332, as a pass-through entity, NHED must "monitor the activities of the subrecipient as necessary to ensure that the subaward is used for authorized purposes, in compliance with federal statutes, regulations, and the terms and conditions of the subaward, and that subaward performance goals are achieved."

As a pass-through entity, the New Hampshire Department of Education (NHED) awards Federal grant funds to eligible subrecipients, including local educational agencies (school districts and charter schools). These Federal grant funds include the emergency assistance provided through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (ESSER I funds), the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (ESSER II funds), and the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP ESSER funds) to help K-12 educational entities prevent, prepare for, and respond to the impacts of COVID-19.

Title II of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 200.332 states that a pass-through entity must “evaluate each subrecipient's risk of noncompliance with Federal statutes, regulations, and the terms and conditions of the subaward for purposes of determining the appropriate subrecipient monitoring …” Although the regulation does not dictate how the risk evaluation must be completed, it states that the risk evaluation may include consideration of such factors as the subrecipient's prior experience with the same or similar subawards, the results of previous audits, whether the district has new personnel or systems, and the results of federal audits. 

To comply with this requirement, NHED conducts a risk assessment of districts and charter schools receiving ESSER funds on a fiscal year basis. Based on the outcome of the risk assessment, districts and charter schools were selected for ESSER programmatic compliance monitoring.

Below are the districts/schools monitored for fiscal year 2021-2022, within fiscal year 2022 and their subsequent 'Final Report' and 'Corrective Action Plan(s).'
