The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires each state to develop a State Performance Plan (SPP) that evaluates the state’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of the IDEA and describes how the state will improve its implementation. In accordance with the requirements under the IDEA, the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) reports on progress against the targets in its SPP in an Annual Performance Report (APR). Also, as required under the IDEA regulations, NDDPI reports annually to the public on the performance of each local educational agency in the state against the state level targets on specific special education performance and compliance indicators.
This section on Special Education Performance Information has been generated to report on the performance of each local education agency, based on the state target for specific indicators in its SPP/APR. This is also in line with the ND’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan as North Dakota Department of Public Instruction implements a dashboard method of transparent reporting to meet state and local accountability requirements, while helping to bring the department’s public reporting efforts into compliance with the IDEA.
