English Learner Education Program Monitoring & Compliance

As one part of its accountability system, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education oversees local compliance with education requirements through Tiered Focused Monitoring (TFM). All reviews cover selected requirements of the following areas: Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; The Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974 (EEOA); the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA); Massachusetts General Laws c. 69, 71A, 71B, and 76; and Chapter 218 of the Massachusetts Acts of 2002. Districts are reviewed every six years through TFM except the districts that repeat as Tier 4 for three consecutive years. These districts' ELE programs are reviewed every 3 years until such time they are no longer Tier 4.

TFM allows for differentiated monitoring based on a district's level of need:

  • Tier 1/Self-Directed Improvement: Data points indicate no concern on compliance and performance outcomes - meets requirements.
  • Tier 2/Directed Self-Improvement: No demonstrated risk in areas with close link to student outcomes - low risk.
  • Tier 3/Corrective Action: Areas of concern include both compliance and student outcomes - moderate risk.
  • Tier 4/Cross-unit Support and Corrective Action: Areas of concern have profound effect on student outcomes and ongoing compliance - high risk.

Problem Resolution System

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is committed to helping individuals and school districts resolve problems promptly. Laws exist to protect the rights of all students in the Commonwealth, and to ensure that all students receive equal educational opportunities.

DESE encourages schools and districts to take quick action to respond to questions and concerns about students' educational programs. Therefore, individuals with such concerns are encouraged to contact school district personnel (for example, the principal, superintendent of schools, or the administrator of special education) first to resolve the problem. However, individuals may ask DESE for assistance without speaking first with someone in the school or district.

Through its Problem Resolution System (PRS), DESE handles complaints that allege a public school or district is not meeting legal requirements for education. Anyone, including parents, students, educators, community members, and agency representatives, can contact PRS for assistance.
