CPR and CAP Reports

Coordinated Program Review and Corrective Action Plan Reports

As part of its accountability system, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) oversees local compliance with education requirements through the Coordinated Program Review (CPR).  All reviews cover selected requirements in the following areas:

  • Special Education (SE)
  • Civil Rights Methods of Administration and Other General Education Requirements (CR)
  • English Learner Education (ELE) in Public Schools

Each school district and charter school in the Commonwealth is scheduled to receive a CPR every six years and a mid-cycle special education follow-up visit three years after the CPR. 

DESE conducted a CPR of Martin Luther King, Jr. Charter School of Excellence in the 2013-14 school year.  For your information, we have posted copies of the Special Education and Civil Rights CPR and the English Learner Education CPR reports.  We have also posted the Corrective Action Plans (CAP) for findings that were identified in each CPR report.
