State Performance Plan (SPP)

IDEA 2004 required the OSDE-SES to establish a performance plan that evaluates the state’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of Part B of IDEA 2004. 

The plan was to be completed by December 2, 2005 and include:

  • A six-year plan for an evaluation of the state's efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to improve educational services for students with disabilities;
  • Targets for each of the 20 indicators identified by the OSEP; 
  • Targets that are specific, measurable, achievable (yet challenging), relevant, and timely;
  • Specific plans for improving performance on each indicator;
  • A yearly report, to OSEP and to the public, reported in an Annual Performance Report (APR) of an indicator's progress and slippage; and
  • An annual report to LEAs of their performance on the targets identified in the SPP.
