Section 5. Ongoing Monitoring and Support

State A is committed to ensuring the long-term success of this initiative. We will do so by using Title I, Part A and Title II, Part A funds to provide technical assistance and oversight to the schools and districts that our data indicate are in the top decile for having the largest percentages of students from low-income families, students of color, or students with disabilities. In particular, we will have additional oversight for the districts with the largest equity gaps for the three statutory metrics for any of the three subgroups described in our equity gap analysis section. At the same time, we will use rapid feedback loops and formal evaluations to monitor both the districts’ implementation of their plans and the progress we are making. This approach will include asking districts to voluntarily submit data to the state for analysis. To incentivize full cooperation, we will publicly report those districts that did not submit data. We also will review applicable research and forward relevant studies to our task forces and to our school districts. Formal monitoring will be conducted on an annual basis and more often if a district fails to make progress toward its performance objectives in a timely manner.

As detailed in Section 4, for each strategy we have a plan in place to assess implementation success. We already have identified the following areas where we will begin collecting information, and we are prepared to build on these efforts with further data collection and reviews as they emerge:

Updated climate survey with an extended working conditions section

New evaluation data for all educators

Fiscal auditing and management

New licensure standards to be implemented and monitored

Ongoing surveys of stakeholder groups for feedback and refinement of the implementation process

We have established a detailed timeline (see Table 7) to guide the short-term and long-term implementation of our plan. Annual public reporting on progress toward addressing root causes to eliminate equity gaps will include posting a progress report on the ADOE website, sending the link to all LEAs and stakeholders, and scheduling a conversation with major news media. Every two years ADOE will formally update this plan based on new data, new analyses of root causes, and new strategies. More frequent updates to inform the plan, as well as strategic approaches to addressing implementation, will be emerge through our biannual Educator Equity Coalition described above.
