  • The ISD may upload supporting documentation using the Browse button above the comment boxes to show evidence of correction of the student record. Multiple documents may be uploaded, if necessary.
  • Next, choose either the Save or Closeout Submitted button at the top of the screen.
  • The Closeout Submitted button will submit the SLCAP to MDE.

Note: All areas of noncompliance must be corrected before submitting the SLCAP to MDE for closeout.
  1. If a citation is noncompliant:
  • Record any notes about noncompliance or further directions to the district in the ISD SLCAP Comment box.
  • Select the SLCAP Returned button at the top of the screen to return the SLCAP to the district.

Note: Once the noncompliance has been corrected, the district will resubmit the SLCAP to the ISD for verification of correction. At this point, the ISD should determine if the citation is now compliant. If so, update the ISD responses and submit the SLCAP to MDE. If noncompliance continues, contact the Office of Special Education.

What If the Student Left and SLCAP Cannot Be Corrected?

The district should:

  • Indicate the date the student left the district in the District Correction field,
  • Provide an explanation such as, “Student is no longer enrolled in the district” in the District SLCAP Comments box, and then
  • Select the Save & Resubmit button.

The ISD should:

  • Verify that the student is no longer enrolled at the district,
  • Insert the date of the ISD’s review in the ISD Review field,
  • Provide a comment in the ISD SLCAP Comments box, if needed
  • Select the Closeout Request Submitted to MDE button.

What Happens Next?

  • During MDE review, the reviewers will verify the SLCAP has been fully corrected and is ready for final review and closeout.
  • If MDE review determines that modifications are still required, then MDE will return the SLCAP to the district for additional work. A member of the Monitoring and Technical Assistance Team may contact the ISD to discuss the item of noncompliance.
  • When the district corrects the SLCAP upon recommendation from MDE’s review, the district will resubmit the SLCAP to the ISD for verification of correction.
  • The ISD will continue to be involved in the review process until MDE’s review considers the issues fully addressed and verifies and closes the SLCAP.
