Background Information

OSEP developed a continuous improvement monitoring process that utilizes the State Performance Plan (SPP) and the Annual Performance Report (APR) as the primary mechanisms to assist states in being accountable to meet the needs of children with disabilities. The SPP contains 14 indicators for the Part C program and 20 indicators for Part B.

This WDPI link will provide an overview of all twenty indicators for Part B (3-21 years): http://sped.dpi.wi.gov/sped_spp By selecting a specific indicator, you will see specific requirements, resources and links, and training. Indicator #7 is the requirement for OSEP Child Outcomes for three through five year olds with IEPs.
