Targeted Level 1 or 2Local educational agencies (LEAs) that have been identified as Targeted Level 1 or 2 are required to participate in all three steps of the Compliance and Improvement Monitoring process. This is the home page for these Levels.
An LEA identified as Targeted Level 1 or 2 in the March 20, 2023, Annual Determination Letter is required to participate in all three steps of the Compliance and Improvement Monitoring (CIM) process, with activities conducted independently with special education local plan area (SELPA) support. By the end of the 2023 monitoring period, the LEA is required to have a fully developed improvement plan that seeks to implement high leverage activities which will improve outcomes for students with disabilities in the areas identified by the Annual Determination Letter.
The California Department of Education (CDE) identifies LEAs who have not met the target for one or two elements as Targeted Level 1, and LEAs who have not met the target for three or more elements as Targeted Level 2.
LEAs identified for Targeted Level 1 or 2 monitoring and support are required to attend all trainings as outlined below in the Trainings table. Targeted Level 1 and 2 LEAs will conduct all activities of the CIM steps independently of the CDE, but with the support of their SELPA. The LEA will develop a CIM Team, conduct an independent data drill down and review of the procedural compliance elements associated with the targets or areas in need of review, perform a root cause analysis, and develop an improvement plan.
