Similar to the U.S. Department of Education (ED), State education agencies (SEAs) are required to monitor State agency (SA) and local education agency (LEA) subgrantees' implementation of Title I, Part D (Part D)-funded programs, per the Federal statute and regulations. SEAs must implement a monitoring process that involves conducting reviews on a set schedule and developing related monitoring protocols and tools. In turn, SAs and LEAs are responsible for monitoring the facilities and programs to which they allocate funds. In this series, participants will: (1) develop familiarity with a research-based subgrantee monitoring tool designed to evaluate teaching and learning environments in neglect, detention or correctional settings, (2) practice administering the tool using fictional scenarios and videos of classroom practice, (3) practice analyzing the data collected by the tool, and (4) discuss how to adapt the tool to participants' local contexts to support subgrantee and facility training and technical assistance activities. The first call will address assuring that the civil rights obligations to students are being met, the second will address serving the needs of special populations (e.g., students with disabilities), and the third and final call will address evaluating the conditions for learning in facilities.
