A lead agency’s general supervision system is the mechanism for enforcing federal requirements and for ensuring continuous improvement. This information might be described in one or more state manuals, documents or tools. This checklist can be used:
- to assess whether or not the lead agency’s current procedures include the necessary elements to effectively monitor the implementation of the IDEA;
- to help evaluate, prioritize, or improve specific parts of the general supervision system;
- in preparation for participation in the Differentiated Monitoring and Support (DMS 2.0) process; and
- in tandem with the Accountability and Quality Improvement Component of the System Framework.
