A Comprehensive Monitoring System.
Severns, George W., Jr.; Sains, Leonard I.
Intended for administrators, the paper reviews the current inadequacy of most state education agency monitoring of private special education programs and considers necessary elements in comprehensive monitoring. Basic challenges related to establishing a fiscal monitoring system are described, including the ability to differentiate quality from nonquality programs and the establishment of reasonableness of costs. Ways to approach fiscal monitoring are advocated, such as reviewing and approving projected costs and verifying final enrollment and actual cost figures. Program monitoring is distinguished from fiscal monitoring and its components of school administration, pupil interaction, educational management, facilities, and personnel management are briefly addressed.
