State Performance Plan

State Performance Plan

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004), Section 616(b), requires each state to develop a six-year performance plan. This State Performance Plan (SPP) evaluates the State’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of IDEA and illustrates how the State will continuously improve upon this implementation. In alignment with IDEA 2004, the US Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) has identified five monitoring priorities within the SPP: (1) Free Appropriate Public Education in the Least Restrictive Environment; (2) Disproportionality; (3) Child Find; (4) Effective Transition; and (5) General Supervision. The SPP contains 20 indicators associated with these five monitoring priorities:
