RE: Interview and Visit Information
The Maine State Department of Education performs on-site reviews for civil rights compliance, as charged by the U. S. Department of Education, on a five-year cycle for all the vocational centers and regions. The on-site review has three general components, which include: 1) written document review, 2) physical setting accessibility and 3) student/instructor interviews. As a way of helping to ensure for compliance at the sending schools we perform several tasks. Specifically, we interview a representative cross-section of the schools' students, review sending school policies and information and have group interviews with all of the key administrators during the on-site review at the vocational center. If it is not possible to perform these functions at the vocational center for a particular school, then I can schedule the interviews at individual school sites.
I have enclosed some sample questions for the different groups that our consultants use as a reference. Listed below is a checklist of the documents we ask the sending schools to bring to the vocational center for our beginning introduction and interview.
If you have any additional questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at 207.624.6747 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
