The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires states to develop a State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR). This evaluates the State’s efforts to implement the requirements of IDEA and describe how the state will improve its special education programs. The SPP/APR includes indicators that measure child and family outcomes, as well as other indicators that measure compliance with IDEA requirements.
The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) is currently developing the 2020–25 SPP/APR. As a part of this process, KSDE is requesting stakeholder input on proposed targets for the SPP/APR indicators. This is an opportunity to hear from educators, families, and community members on the direction our state takes to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.
There are PowerPoints that explain any proposed or required indicator changes and the proposed projected targets for the indicators for the next SPP/APR cycle. There are surveys for individuals to share their feedback on the indicators. The PowerPoints and survey are located on the SPP/APR page of the KSDE website, https://www.ksde.org/Agency/Division-of-Learning-Services/Special-Education-and-Title-Services/Special-Education/KIAS/SPP-and-APR. Please review the Kansas SPP/APR data visualizations at https://public.tableau.com/profile/general.supervision.timely.and.accurate.data#!/. The PowerPoints and surveys are available from July 9 through August 13.
