State Performance Plan
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires each state to develop a state performance plan/annual performance report (SPP/APR) that evaluates the state's efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of the IDEA and describes how the state will improve its implementation. The SPP/APRs include indicators that measure child and family outcomes and other indicators that measure compliance with the requirements of the IDEA.
Below you will find information to be used for each indicator. Please check back periodically as this site will be updated as new materials are created.
This page will become the access page for the public reporting of the SPP indicators for the state and districts.
