Continuous Improvement & Compliance

The Ionia County Intermediate School District (ICISD) and local districts must comply with the procedures of the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and the Catamaran monitoring system. This system is used to track activities and data related to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Michigan Administrative Rules for Special Education (MARSE). The goal of Catamaran is to provide consistent and regular feedback to districts with regard to how they are performing in their effort to address the State Performance Plan (SPP) indicators. Depending on how a district is performing on the compliance and results SPP indicators will determine what steps may or may not be necessary to improve district performance and ultimately student performance.

Ionia County ISD provides training and support to all local school districts as needed.
