Accountability Structures in Managing State Education Agency Competency Based Education Programs.
This paper provides the background for and provisions of the accountability materials that were authorized by the Louisiana Bureau of Elementary Education to monitor schools' compliance with the Louisiana Competency Based Education Law. In order effectively to manage the two major components of the law--the Pupil Progression Plans and the State-Funded Compensatory/Remedial Programs--school districts were provided materials on a variety of areas. For the Pupil Progression Plans the materials included a guideline for pupil progression, a procedural format, a school-district checklist of steps for compliance, an evaluation instrument for local plans, training manuals, public information, and procedures for revision of the progression plans. For the Remedial Programs, a summary of state regulations was accompanied by procedures, formats, and applications for summer programs, class profile sheets in mathematics and language arts, checklists for compliance, training manuals, and instruments for measuring student skill levels. Feedback from local program staff was recorded, as well. (JW)
