Annual audits and IDEA monitoring

Omissions in special education student files can result in an audit finding and funds being recovered. Evaluations reports incomplete, timelines missed, or improperly developed IEPs can result in time-consuming corrective actions. If too many systemic errors are uncovered, there may be a call for a program and fiscal audit.

This process will provide group and on-site instruction assistance for the use of a tool kit to:

  • Reduce student file errors in your annual audits – identify the four specific items in your student files that eliminate the chance for special education funds to be recovered.
  • Prepare your files for the more comprehensive IDEA monitoring.
