This OSEP guidance provides states with the information necessary to exercise their general supervision responsibilities under IDEA and ensure appropriate monitoring, technical assistance, and enforcement regarding local programs. It reaffirms the importance of general supervision and the expectation that monitoring the implementation of IDEA will improve early intervention, educational results, and functional outcomes for children with disabilities and their families. It replaces these OSEP resources:
- Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Identification and Correction of Noncompliance and Reporting on Correction in the State Performance Plan (SPP)/Annual Performance Report (APR) (September 3, 2008);
- OSEP Memo 09-02: Reporting on Correction of Noncompliance in the Annual Performance Report Under Sections 616 and 642 of IDEA (October 17, 2008); and
- Questions and Answers on Monitoring, Technical Assistance, and Enforcement (June 2009).
