Differentiated Monitoring and Support (DMS) Reports

In 2016, OSEP began providing differentiated monitoring and support (DMS) to states as part of its Results Driven Accountability (RDA) system. Under RDA, OSEP made a shift from monitoring based solely on compliance to monitoring and support focused on both compliance and improving results for children with disabilities. OSEP differentiates its approach for each state based on the state's unique strengths, progress, challenges, and needs.

Based on an annual Organizational Assessment of Risk Factors of each state, OSEP annually provides differentiated monitoring and support to states on:

  • Ensuring improved outcomes for infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities.
  • Complying with the IDEA programmatic requirements.
  • Complying with federal fiscal requirements.
  • Collecting and reporting valid and reliable data.
  • Ensuring implementation of the state's State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP).
