ABOUT THE WEBINAR: The State Performance Plan (SPP) and Annual Performance Report (APR) are important elements of the monitoring and enforcement requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act(IDEA). The SPP and APR are the primary mechanisms by which the U.S. Department of Education (USED) determines which states are selected for monitoring and enforcement actions and, in turn, how states identify local school districts for monitoring and corrective action. As such, special education advocates need to understand the structure of the SPP, the APR requirements, as well as how the USED and states make determine the performance rating as required by IDEA. This Webinar provides an overview of the SPP and APR, how advocacy organizations and individual advocates can play a role in the use of SPP/APR information, and how SPP/APR data can and should be used to select and implement activities funded with IDEA Recovery Act funds.
