All meetings will be held at SMCOE from 8:30am to 11:30am along with the English Learner Acquisition Consortium (ELAC) Meetings. Pastries, coffee, and tea will be provided.

In efforts to reduce SMCOE’s ecological footprint and move towards our goal of becoming Zero Waste, SMCOE will no longer be serving beverages in single use disposable plastic bottles. Please plan to bring a refillable bottle to take advantage of the multiple hydration stations throughout the building.

Federal Program Monitoring

School districts, direct-funded charter schools, and county offices that receive funding for certain programs may be chosen for a review by the state. The purpose of the review is to ensure that they are spending the funding as required by law. At the end of each review, the state will complete a report that details any findings of non-compliance and informs the school, district, or county office how to correct the findings.

How are LEAs selected for review?

The Federal Program Monitoring (FPM) Office at the California Department of Education (CDE) coordinates these reviews through the FPM Regional Team Leads. Each local educational agencies (LEA) in the state belongs to one of eleven regions. In addition, LEAs are assigned to one of four cycles (A, B, C, or D). SMCOE is in Region 4 and is assigned to Cycle B. Each year, multiple data from LEAs in two of the four cycles are analyzed by CDE. Several factors, including compliance history, academic achievement, program size, and fiscal analysis are considered in identifying LEAs for reviews. Based on these factors, LEAs may be selected for an onsite or online monitoring every two years.

County Office of Education (COE) Leads in partnership with the California Department of Education provide support to LEAs in the FPM process. Support activities may include providing technical assistance and trainings for LEAs. COE Leads coordinate regional/county support, contribute to user forums to share ideas, provide feedback, and facilitate communication.
