Targeted Level 2Local educational agencies that have been identified as Targeted Level 2 are required to participate in all three steps of the Compliance and Improvement Monitoring process. This is the home page for that Level.
If you have been identified as Targeted Level 2 in your March 14, 2022, Annual Determination Letter, you are required to participate in all three steps of the Compliance and Improvement Monitoring (CIM) process, with some activities conducted independently, some with the assistance and guidance of a technical assistance provider, and some with California Department of Education (CDE) support. The goal at the end of the monitoring period to have a fully developed improvement plan that seeks to implement a high leverage activity that will improve outcomes for students with disabilities in the local educational agency (LEA) in the area of disproportionality.
The CDE identifies LEAs for level 2 targeted monitoring that are in year one of Disproportionality. LEAs identified for level 2 targeted monitoring and support will conduct most of their monitoring independently. The LEA will conduct an independent data drill down and review of the procedural compliance elements associated with the targets or areas in need of review, using templates provided by CDE.
