SPECIAL REPORTS

 

States must submit a State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) by February of each year. The submission uses the previous year’s performance data.

Following the release of the 2022 State Performance Reports/Annual Performance Reports (SPP/APRs) by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) at the U.S. Dept. of Education in late September 2022, The Advocacy Institute produced a series of Special Reports examining the annual targets set by states for several of the SPP indicators. States were required to include new 6 year targets for FFY 2020 through 2025 in their 2022 submission. As directed by OSEP, the State's FFY 2025 target must reflect improvement over the baseline data.
