Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS) Overview

Performance-Based Monitoring (PBM) staff develops the Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS), an automated data system that reports annually on the performance of school districts and charter schools in selected program areas (bilingual education/English as a second language, career and technical education, special education, and certain Title programs under the No Child Left Behind Act).

From the data contained in the PBMAS, PBM staff produces annual PBMAS district reports.  These reports, produced since 2004, include specific district-level data for each performance indicator in the PBMAS.  State-level PBMAS reports were first produced in 2006 and regional reports in 2007.  A technical resource for understanding the PBMAS reports is each year's corresponding PBMAS Manual.

Program Monitoring and Interventions (PMI) staff monitors and supports intervention activities within this data-driven and performance-based system using a continuous improvement model.  Activities targeted to improve student performance and program effectiveness reflect an emphasis on data integrity and analysis, needs assessment, improvement planning, and progress reporting.  If noncompliance, student performance, or program effectiveness concerns are identified, school districts are required to participate in these activities and may also be subject to additional sanctions and interventions, including on-site reviews.
