Discussion of Improvement Activities Completed and Explanation of Progress or Slippage that occurred for FFY 2007: I. Improvement Activities Completed The improvement activities related to an effective general supervision system are interrelated to several other indicators in the State Performance Plan (SPP) including: � Indicator 15: Effective General Supervision � Indicator 16: Complaint Investigation Timeline � Indicator 17: Due Process Hearing Timeline � Indicator 18: Resolution Session The data associated with the indicators above must be considered when addressing the mediation indicator. � Mediators attended training sessions, conferences, and participated in other educational opportunities throughout 2008; � TEA staff facilitated focus groups with parents, district staff, advocates, and attorneys regarding dispute resolution (including mediation) to determine existing needs across the state as identified by the participants; � TEA staff and contractors continue to provide verbal and written information about mediation to parties to special education disputes and other stakeholders; and � In May of 2008, the TEA sponsored an eight hour advanced mediation training for mediators and TEA staff. II. Explanation of Progress or Slippage The TEA experienced a rise in the number of mediation requests in FFY 07 and also experienced an increase in the resolution rate of mediations conducted in FFY 07. The feedback that the TEA has received regarding the mediation program from participants and stakeholders has been very positive. The TEA attributes the high resolution rate for mediations to the skill levels of its contracted mediators and to its ongoing efforts to encourage parties in dispute to consider mediation as a means for resolving their disputes. The TEA is pleased with the progress for this indicator and will continue to encourage mediation. The FFY 2007 target was 76% (+2% over FFY 2006 performance of 74%). The State met the target by reporting 78% of mediations resulted in agreements. Revisions, with Justification, to Proposed Targets / Improvement Activities / Timelines / Resources for FFY 2008: I. Targets No revision to the 80% target for FFY 2008 (based on a 2% increase from FFY 2007 performance). II. Improvement Activities / Timelines / Resources During the 2008-09 year, the TEA will implement the following activities to improve the dispute resolution system: � The TEA will coordinate a specialized training session for mediation program staff and mediators; � An informational document regarding the mediation process and a mediation request form will be provided to each parent who requests a due process hearing; Part B State Annual Performance Report for FFY 2007 February 2, 2009 (OMB NO: 1820-0624 / Expiration Date: 08-31-2009) Page 100
