State Performance Plan The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) requires each state to develop a multi-year performance plan. This State Performance Plan (SPP) evaluates the state’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of the IDEA and describes how the state will continuously improve upon this implementation. The SPP includes measurable and rigorous targets for 17 indicators.
Part B State Performance Plan Indicator 17: The State Systemic Improvement Plan SSIP is a multi-year plan, implemented in phases, to include: The identification of systemic approaches that will lead to improved results for students with disabilities across key measures: performance on assessment, graduation with a regular diploma, and post-school outcomes; The development of a plan to support LEAs in identifying and implementing the evidence-based practices that will result in changes in school and provider practices to advance the state-identified, measurable improvement in results for students with disabilities; and The alignment with other initiatives, including initiatives in general education and other areas beyond special education, which can have an impact on students with disabilities.
Why SSIP? Why Now? Despite a focus on compliance, states are not seeing improved results for children and youth with disabilities: Young children are not coming to Kindergarten prepared to learn; In many locations, a significant achievement gap exists between students with disabilities and their general education peers; Students are dropping out of school; and/or Many students who do graduate with a regular education diploma are not college and career ready.
