State Performance Plan Indicators

The State Performance Plan (SPP) is a six-year performance plan, which evaluates a SEA's efforts to implement IDEA requirements and describes how the SEA will improve its performance in 20 critical areas, known as indicators.  Fourteen of the SPP indicators (Indicators 1 through 14) are a combination of areas that gauge educational outcomes for students with disabilities, as well as school districts' strict compliance with IDEA requirements.  The last six SPP indicators (Indicators 15 through 20) judge the SEA's exercise of general supervisory authority under IDEA.

Please refer to the SPP Indicator Improvement Resources page for additional resources.  Technical assistance with SPP indicators may be requested at www.ksdetasn.org.
