Challenges to Step 1: Identify an Issue

  • Limited or no monitoring of fiscal accountability
  • Some core state monitoring criteria do not correspond to SPP/APR indicators
  • Collecting data on too many different "things" - not prioritizing what data to collect (not all of IDEA)
  • Too many redundant components of general supervision system and methods used for monitoring
  • High frequency of issues identified
  • State data systems that are not real time and do not capture data on all indicators and priority areas
