The AGE grants require that programs use the same process that we use with OVAE in setting our state targets. Local programs develop plans to meet the state target within a certain time frame and may initiate program improvement plans if outcomes are low and not showing improvement. The Compliance and Monitoring Team uses NRS data as well as other data to ensure that programs are in compliance and showing program improvement (http://www.fldoe.org/workforce/compliance.asp).
