Verification and Closeout Next Steps

After the Office of Special Education (OSE) reviews the submitted information, the Corrective Action will be returned to the ISD or State Agency so documentation may be uploaded for MDE to review during the closeout process. See the MDE Comments on the Cover Page for the specific student record(s) and next steps.

Based on this review, the MDE will establish the ISD or State Agency is correctly implementing the specific statutory or regulatory requirements and the identified noncompliance has been corrected. Once evidence of correction can be verified, the MDE will notify the ISD or State Agency, close the Corrective Action, and issue a closeout letter in the September 2021 Catamaran release.
