SPP Data Collection

What's Required
Each state is required to develop a six-year performance plan that evaluates the state's efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004), Section 616(b). This State Performance Plan (SPP) illustrates how the state will continuously improve upon this implementation, and includes updates through the Annual Performance Report (APR) submitted annually each February.

In alignment with IDEA, the US Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (USDE/OSEP) identifies five monitoring priorities within the SPP and 20 indicators associated with these monitoring priorities.
