2011-2012 RF Monitoring Intervention Staging LEAs that had students entered in RF Tracker during the 2010-2011 school year were “staged” using the following criteria: Criteria 1. Ranking from RF Tracker Data RF Tracker has built in calculations that assign a “score” to the following four areas: a) LRE Calculation: This calculation is derived from 2 factors: 1) Is the student educated at the site of the residential facility? (Note: If the student resides in a facility that meets the definition of a “detention/correctional facility,” this calculation does not count against the LEA for this student.) 2) Has the student moved from a more restrictive environment to a less restrictive environment while in the RF? b) Commensurate School Day: This calculation looks at students who have a commensurate school day and those who do not. c) ESY: This calculation looks at the number of students who were reported to have ESY services. d) Related Services: This calculation looks at the number of RF student who receive related services. Each factor is assigned points. The points from each factor are added and the calculation is represented as a percentage of the possible points. The percentage of points that the LEA did not receive is divided by 2 to determine the rubric points. 2. Time Since Last RF Monitoring On-Site Visit 2010-2011 = 0 points 2009-2010 = 3 points 2008-2009 = 6 points 2007-2008 = 9 points 2006-2007 = 12 points No previous on-site visit conducted = 15 points 3. New Residential Facilities Reported by the LEA in RF Tracker in 2010-2011 No = 0 points Yes = 5 points 4. LEA’s 2010-2011 SPED PBMAS Stage of Intervention Not Staged = 0 points Stage 1A or 1B = 2 points Stage 2 = 3 points Stage 3 = 4 points Stage 4 = 5 points Points Possible a) b) c) d) 40 points 30 points 7.5 points 22.5 points Total: 100 points 15 points 5 points 5 points 2011-2012 RF Monitoring Intervention Staging Criteria 5. Number of Years LEA has been Cited for Special Education Noncompliance Since the 2004-2005 School Year This includes noncompliance citations due to: sustained complaint allegations, adverse due process hearing decisions, current focused data analysis, program effectiveness review, LEA public meeting, compliance review, State Performance Plan (SPP) reporting of data, special education on-site visit results, nonpublic review, RF monitoring, review of documentation by TEA, and/or continuing special education noncompliance issues. 1 year = 1 point 2 years = 2 points 3 years = 3 points 4 years = 5 points 5 years = 7 points 6 years = 10 points 6. Whether the LEA is Currently in Escalated Oversight This could be escalated oversight due to continuing noncompliance, failure to follow monitoring process, failure to meet program requirements, failure to meet compliance requirement and/or serious , imminent risks. The TEA may be engaging in escalated follow-up with the LEA, ordered the LEA to acquire outside professional services, or may have assigned a technical assistance team, monitor, conservator, or management team. No = 0 points Yes = 10 points 7. Data Quality Issues Concerning the RF Tracker Data The LEA did not complete the RF Tracker activities according to agency timelines or errors in the data were identified. No = 0 points Yes = 15 points Staging Selections Stage 1: 45-49 points Stage 2: 50-55 points Stage 3: 56-61 points Stage 4: 62-76 points Stage 4A: LEA received an onsite review during the previous school year and is currently implementing a CAP. Stage 4B: LEA previously received an on-site review and all noncompliance identified during the review has been corrected. Points Possible 10 points 10 points 15 points Staging Notes: LEAs staged with a designation of Conservator Recently Removed (CRR) or Year After Onsite (YAO) do not have to participate in or submit RF intervention activities. TEA may choose to do an on-site review at any time, regardless of staging.
