Results-Driven Accountability in Special Education (Virginia Department of Education, VDOE)
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is required to monitor the implementation of Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), (34 CFR 300.600(b)). The IDEA establishes requirements for state monitoring, enforcement, and annual reporting, and requires that the primary focus of monitoring be on: (1.) Improving educational results and functional outcomes for all children with disabilities; and (2.) Ensuring that public agencies meet the program requirements under this part, with a particular emphasis on those requirements that are most closely related to improving educational results for children with disabilities.
