(1.44) What happens when CDE finds a district out of compliance?

If the investigation indicates that the school district failed to comply with the law, CDE may require “corrective action.” The CDE investigation report must set forth the timelines the district must follow to correct its violations. [5 C.C.R. Sec. 4664.]

If the noncompliance is not corrected, CDE shall take further action. Actions may include a court proceeding for an order requiring compliance, or a proceeding to recover or stop state funding to the noncompliant local district. [5 C.C.R. Sec. 4670(a).]

If CDE finds that a district has not provided appropriate services, it must address the failure through corrective actions that address the needs of the affected student.  These corrective actions may include compensatory services or monetary reimbursement. Federal regulations also require CDE to “address…appropriate future provision of services for allchildren with disabilities” in its corrective action plan. [34 C.F.R. Sec. 300.151(b) (italics added).]
