Public Academies Special Education Monitoring

Public Academies Compliance & Improvement Monitoring Process

The Public Academies Compliance & Improvement Monitoring (CIM) process is designed to monitor public academies’ compliance with IDEA 2004, NH Statutes, and the New Hampshire Rules for the Education of Children with Disabilities Amended May 15, 2014, while placing particular emphasis on improving the outcomes for students with disabilities and their families.

Monitoring is done on a cyclical basis. During the year prior to monitoring, the New Hampshire Department of Education (NHDOE), Bureau of Special Education (Bureau) offers training to each public academy who is involved in the monitoring process. Training encompasses writing Measurable Annual Goals, Written Prior Notice, Accommodations and Modifications, CIM Self-Assessment form, and a topic selected by the public academy based on current need.

At the beginning of the school year in which the public academy is being monitored, the public academy will send the Bureau descriptions of their approved programs as well as their program’s policy and procedure manual, special education personnel, and any special education forms that are used by the public academy. Following a review of these documents, the monitoring team will look for evidence of implementation of district policies and proceures which pertain to program approval and conduct an on-site review in which student files are examined for evidence of implementation of the policies and procedures through the special education process. The Bureau will also conduct a follow-up review to verify the implementation of corrective actions as defined in the summary report.
