The Florida Department of Education’s Universal Monitoring System is designed to define a tiered support system to be used by all K12 ESEA Federal Programs. This system identifies the levels of tiered support provide to LEAs. The Universal Risk Assessment contains common performance and fiscal indicators to identify LEAs with high risk for on-site monitoring. Program specific monitoring will be provided for all LEAs and support will be customized based on need or request.
Tier 1 and Tier 2 monitoring will be carried out through a combination of program specific support and technical assistance opportunities.
Tier 1 monitoring and support is defined as program specific monitoring that will be provided to all LEAs including review of program deliverables outlined by the program office. In other words the program office will collect and evaluate information provided by LEAs to demonstrate compliance with program requirements.
Tier 2 monitoring and support is defined as an opportunity to provide technical assistance based on Tier 1 outcomes, performance indicators and/or by an LEAs request.
Tier 3 intensive on-site collaborative monitoring is guided by FDOE’s Universal Risk Assessment. If an LEA is determined as high risk an on-site monitoring visit will we conducted by a team comprised of ALL ESEA federal programs.
