Special Education monitoring provides general supervision and oversight of special education programs in Minnesota public schools to ensure compliance with federal and state legislation. In Orono Schools, this is accomplished through the Minnesota Continuous Improvement Monitoring Process (MNCIMP).
MNCIMP provides the vehicle for MDE oversight of due process and procedural safeguards, conferred education benefit, the provision of a free appropriate public education (FAPE), and the full provision of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
The Self-Review process brings compliance and special education program evaluation into a single strategic plan to improve due process compliance and program results for students with disabilities. This monitoring option includes record reviews, on-site observations and the collection of stakeholder information.
