Performance and Accountability

  • Accountability and Support - A Colorado Priority
    CDE supports districts and schools through an educational system focused on ensuring all students will exit Colorado's K-12 schools ready for postsecondary education and workforce success.
  • State Performance Plan (SPP)
    The SPP is the State's plan to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) that evaluates the State's efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of Part B of the IDEA and how the State will improve the implementation of IDEA Part B. The SPP contains measurable and rigorous targets in 20 indicators that were established by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Annual Performance Report (APR)
    The APR is the State's update of the SPP. The APR explains the State's efforts over the previous year to reach targets established in the SPP including an explanation of any progress or slippage that might have occurred.
  • Administrative Unit (AU) State Performance Plan Indicator Profiles - Reports to the Public
    IDEA 2004 requires states to report to the public on each AU's performance compared to state targets and state performance for 14 indicators from the State Performance Plan (SPP). Indicators reported to the public are a mixture of performance and compliance indicators.
  • School View
    Compare the performance of Colorado schools and districts and gauge their progress. You can access performance data for all schools and districts across the state.
