APS Special Education, Civil Rights & English Language Learning in Full Compliance with DESE Review

Andover Public Schools (APS) received a positive result from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (DESE) most recent Tiered Focused Monitoring Report. The finding in the report reads: “The Department is pleased to report that the school district was found to be in compliance with all criteria reviewed; no corrective action is required at this time.”

All Massachusetts school districts and charter schools participate in the public school monitoring process every six years to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations in three categories: special education, civil rights and English language learning. Each district and charter school also receives a mid-cycle review after three years.

The district is required to submit extensive documentation to DESE prior to an on-site visit and review. In December 2019, representatives from DESE visited APS for their “On-Site” verification process. After the review of documentation and the on-site visit, DESE concluded that APS was found to be in compliance with all criteria reviewed and, importantly, no corrective action on the part the district is required at this time.
