11 Rationale for Audit Compliance Mandated by law Creating a Schoolwide Plan with strategies that will increase student achievement in order for the school to make Adequate Yearly Progress Detailing the use of Title I funds in the Schoolwide Plan so an auditor can track how the federal funds are being utilized to increase student achievement Being able to successfully complete an auditor’s interview by explaining compliance 11

12 Example of State Compliance Compliance Item KIA-6: The Local Educational Agency (LEA) shall ensure that each participating school, in conjunction with the parents of participating students, has jointly developed a school- parent compact that: describes the school's responsibility to provide high quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment; addresses the importance of ongoing communication between teachers and parents; and describes the ways in which each parent will be responsible for supporting their child's learning. Section 1118(d), P.L.107-110 School Review Question(s) Who was involved in the development of the compacts? When and how were these compacts developed and/or revised? How are the compacts used? When and how often are the compacts used? 12

13 Another Example Compliance Item AIA-5: The Local Educational Agency (LEA) must ensure that schoolwide program plans describe how: the school will implement the ten (10) components of the plan; resources are used from Title I and other sources; and schools will provide academic achievement results to parents in a language they can understand. Section 1114(b)(2)(A)(i-iv), P.L.107-110 School Level Questions What fiscal resources were used to support implementation of the schoolwide plans? How were parents notified of academic achievement results? Were these results provided in a language understandable to parents? 13
