PURPOSE OF MONITORING
SASA monitoring assesses the extent to which States provide leadership and guidance for local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools in implementing policies and procedures that comply with the provisions of the Title I, Part A, Even Start, NorD, Homeless statutes and regulations, and Title III as authorized under the Education Department of General Administrative Regulations at 34 CFR 80.40.
Monitoring formalizes the integral relationship between ED and the States. It emphasizes, first and foremost, accountability for using resources wisely in the critical venture of educating and preparing our nation's students. Using monitoring indicators clarifies for States, and for ED monitors, the critical components of this accountability and provides a performance standard against which State policies and procedures can be measured. As a result of monitoring, ED is able to gather accurate data about State and local needs and use that data to design technical assistance initiatives and national leadership activities.
