Public Reporting of IDEA B Data

Published: 4/4/2019 9:03 AM

This page provides information regarding the public reporting of special education data, the State Performance Plan (SPP) and information regarding Kentucky's IDEA State Application.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires states to submit a State Performance Plan (SPP) and to annually report data on the status toward meeting the targets on the indicators contained in this plan. This report of status is called the Annual Performance Report (APR) and is submitted on or around February first of each year. To determine Kentucky's status toward achieving the targets of the SPP, the Division of Learning Services (DLS) in the Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL)collects data from local school districts, parents, and other sources. These data are reviewed, interpreted, and reported in the APR. The APR contains information about how the state performed for each of the indicators and explanations for meeting or not meeting targets as well as continued activities for maintaining or improving performance.

States are also required to publish the performance of each district on the targets for these indicators.  Below are links to the data for each indicator.
