How is Your School Performing in Special Education?
Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), states are required to report the progress of students with disabilities in essential areas of performance through developing state and annual performance reports (SPP/APR).
These reports provide families and students receiving special education, data about Utah’s compliance with federal requirements under IDEA. This is done by measuring 17 indicators of compliance within your Utah district or charter school. These indicators include graduation diploma percentages, dropout percentages, grade-level academic achievement standards, suspension/expulsion, educational environments, and more. The Office of Special Education (OSEP) uses this information to determine if the state:
- Meets requirements and purposes of the IDEA
- Needs assistance in implementing the requirements of Part B or Part C of the IDEA
- Needs intervention in implementing the requirements of Part B or Part C of the IDEA
- Needs substantial intervention in implementing the requirements of Part B or Part C of the IDEA
