Cohort Rotation Schedule by School Year

A local educational agency (LEA) may be selected for an onsite or online monitoring review every two years. This model demonstrates the rotation of the cohorts for a four-year period.

LEAs are assigned to one of four cohorts: A, B, C or D. Each school year, approximately 130 LEAs are selected for review-65 LEAs from one cohort for an onsite review, and another 65 LEAs from a different cohort for an online review. The LEAs are selected using established selection criteria including program size, fiscal analysis, compliance history, and continuous improvement.
