Compliance

The Compliance Web-based system helps districts and community schools monitor whether they are meeting the legal requirements of ESEA and other federally funded programs. It is a tool for self-evaluation and compliance monitoring of any programs receiving federal funds.


 

FEDERAL PROGRAMS SELF SURVEY  

Every district not selected for a desk or on-site review must complete the Consolidated ESEA Grants Self Survey. The survey will be available in the Compliance system in the OH|ID account in January. The deadline to complete the survey is May 31. If you have additional questions, please contact your consultant in the Office of Federal Programs.  

FEDERAL PROGRAMS DESK REVIEW  

The Office of Federal Programs will select approximately 8 percent of the districts in the current school year for additional monitoring. The district and the Federal Programs consultant arrange the desk review together. The district uploads specific requested documentation into the Compliance system. Upon satisfactory completion of the desk review, the Office of Federal Programs consultant completes the survey in the Compliance system indicating that the district met compliance. If there are noncompliance findings, the district must submit a Corrective Action Plan in writing to the Ohio Department of Education for review, resolution and acceptance.  Districts will participate in a follow-up the following year for those items that were identified for findings to assure that the corrective action plan has been effective.  

FEDERAL PROGRAMS ONSITE REVIEW  

The Office of Federal Programs will select approximately 25 percent of the districts identified for additional monitoring in the current school year for on-site review. Similar to the desk review, the district uploads specific requested documentation into the Compliance system. A team from the department of education, led by an Office of Federal Programs consultant assigned to the district, visits the district’s central office and Title I served schools, as well as nonpublic schools and neglected and/or delinquent institutions. The team conducts a review of the documentation to verify compliance with requirements outlined in the onsite survey available in the Compliance system. After the onsite review, the Federal Programs consultant completes the survey in the Compliance system, shares it with the district and identifies areas of compliance or noncompliance with the requirements to become compliant. If there are noncompliance findings, the district must submit a Corrective Action Plan in writing to the Ohio Department of Education for review, resolution and acceptance. Districts will participate in a follow-up the following year for those items that were identified for findings to assure that the corrective action plan has been effective.
