California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This document provides instructions for filling out the Compliance Summary Form for Program Reviews, which is used at elementary and secondary school sites to determine compliance with federal and state laws and regulations. All schools receiving consolidated application program funds are required to conform to the standards specified in this document. School program review teams use this instrument to determine program compliance. Schools and districts are also encouraged to use the instrument as an ongoing planning tool. There are 64 compliance items that follow the sequence of instruction, instructional support, and improvement process. Some of the items included are compensatory education, bilingual education, special education, and Native American students. A section of the instructions consists of operational statements and questions to guide the reviewer in making compliance determinations. Ways for approaching the issues through documentation, interviews, student work, and observations are listed. This is followed by the screening items organized in the above sequence. After each compliance item a key to legal references is listed in parentheses. The four appendices contain the official forms to be completed by the program reviewers. (Author/MLF)
