Federal regulations and administrative procedures require that the state educational agency (SEA) monitor the implementation of program requirements and the expenditure of federal funds. Monitoring of federal programs is conducted to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. Monitoring emphasizes accountability for using resources wisely. It serves as a vehicle for the Georgia Department of Education (Department) to help LEAs achieve high-quality implementation of educational programs.
Georgia Department of Education’s Federal Programs monitoring process consists of eight major components:
- Monitoring of Expenditures
- Single Audit
- Physical Inventory Monitoring
- Flexible Learning Program (FLP)
- On-Site Monitoring
- Desktop Monitoring of Approved LEA Budgets
