The Methods of Administration (MOA) Program
To assure that the civil rights requirements specified by The Vocational Education Guidelines are strictly upheld, the U.S. Department of Education, through the Office for Civil Rights, required states to develop a Methods of Administration compliance program. Maine has developed a plan for Methods of Administration for Civil Rights Compliance in Vocational Education. In order to comply with this plan, a MOA Team exists within the Department. This group is composed of representatives from within the Department and is chaired by the MOA Coordinator.
The MOA Team has the responsibility to provide technical assistance to administrative and supervisory personnel at all levels of the recipient institutions in order that they can comply with the provisions of the law; establish the procedures which assure compliance with the provisions of the law; and to carry out monitoring in the institutions that offer vocational programs and receive federal funds.
Annually, 20% of Maine's Secondary and Post-Secondary institutions that offer vocational education programs and receive federal financial assistance are selected for an on-site review. Reviews also scheduled due to any or all of the following reasons listed below:
This phase of the review consists of a visit to the institution and interviews with the superintendents, principals, directors, guidance counselors, teachers and students, as well as classroom observation, review of records, tours of the physical plant and grounds to assess the institutions compliance with federal civil rights statutes in the vocational programs offered by the institution. For more information for the onsite review the following pages are available for your reference.
