Each local provider's contract with the Arizona Department of Education includes assurances of compliance with ADE reporting policies and procedures. State staff evaluates data at least monthly and ongoing discussions and technical assistance efforts verify that providers are following state policies and procedures.
Local providers are required to enter their data at least monthly. State staff reviews submitted data of every provider at least monthly. Federal Reporting Tables and other data reports are examined by state staff for each provider, as well as the state aggregate, and data sets are analyzed for consistency in employment status, age eligibility, and miscellaneous demographic information. In addition, student attendance and assessment records are reviewed to identify potential issues. When issues are observed in the data, state staff contacts the local program director via telephone, email or site visit. Comprehensive training is provided at director, instructor and support-staff levels for standardized assessment administration, data management system usage, and the use of data for program improvement. Additional statewide, regional and/or program-specific training workshops, as well as targeted and intensive technical assistance, are provided to address of issues identified by state staff analysis of the data.
