Management Module: Enforcement. A Study of State Management Practices: Looking Back at Title I and Toward Chapter 1.
Putman, Kim E.
This volume is the fourth module, "Enforcement," of the evaluation report documenting how States met the requirements of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended in 1978, and identifying exemplary State management practices and documents. The module begins with a history of enforcement under Title I up to its replacement by Chapter 1 of the Educational Consolidation and Improvement Act. The next section on continuation plans presents discussions on audits in two parts: withholding payment, and complaint resolution. The third section of the module reviews States' past practices, particularly as they may be relevant to future audit requirements. According to data collected, almost all States will need to modify their practices to conform to regulations. The discussion then turns to a review of the compliance areas that were reportedly audited by States. Some form of compliance auditing appears to have been conducted in 43 States, and the majority of States audited only 5 of the 7 requirements covered by auditing regulations. Finally, this section presents 17 exhibits, selected from those supplied by States, of portions from past audit materials using different compliance areas to demonstrate the audit report formats used.
