State Performance Plan/ Annual Performance Reports (SPP/APR)

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires each state to develop a state performance plan/annual performance report (SPP/APR) that evaluates the state’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of the IDEA and describes how the state will improve its implementation. The SPP/APR includes indicators that measure child and family outcomes and other indicators that measure compliance with the requirements of the IDEA.

The "SPP-APR FFY2020 Submission" video provides an overview of the reporting cycle. Below, is the list of the SPP/APR indicators for which CDE seeks input from as many Colorado Stakeholders as possible. Please watch a short video and click on the corresponding blue feedback form button to tell us what you think of the proposed targets and improvement strategies.
