Data and Reporting

The Monroe County Intermediate School District (MCISD) conducts yearly reviews of selected special education student files to assure compliance with federal and state rules. This review is completed by Catamaran.

Catamaran is the system used to track activities and data related to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act(IDEA) and the Michigan Administrative Rules for Special Education (MARSE) for the Michigan Department of Education Offices of Special Education and Early Childhood Development and Family Education. Catamaran is designed to support districts and service areas in meeting their obligations of the IDEA, the MARSE, and state-identified priorities.

In addition, the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education (OSEP) developed 17 indicators to help each state measure and report on their efforts to educate students with disabilities. Each state reports on their performance on each indicator and their plan to make progress in the State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report.

Each indicator is either a results indicator or a compliance indicator. Results indicators have targets set by each state with input from their stakeholders. Compliance indicators have targets of 0 percent or 100 percent set by the OSEP.
