Federal Program Monitoring (FPM)

School districts, direct-funded charter schools and county offices that receive funding for certain programs may be chosen for a review by the state. The purpose of the review is to ensure that they are spending the funding as required by law. At the end of each review, the stated will complete a report of findings that informs the school, district, or county office how to correct the findings. 

The California Department of Education (CDE) works to provide a simplified and streamlined monitoring through this process. Within the CDE, the Federal Program Monitoring (FPM) office coordinates the monitoring reviews, which take place either in person or online.
