State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR)
Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA), states are required to report the progress of students with disabilities in important areas of performance. This page provides important information about the Rhode Island Performance Report.
State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP)
The Rhode Island Department of Education is currently developing a new performance indicator for the State Performance Plan (SPP) which will be submitted to the US Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) on April 1, 2015. The development of this indicator is the result of OSEP’s focus on Result Driven Accountability (RDA). OSEP has used the promotion of RDA to maintain the continued efforts of states to address the compliance indicators of the SPP while increasing the focus on improving outcomes for students with disabilities.
The State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) is a comprehensive, multi-year plan that focuses on improving results for children with disabilities. The SSIP will be reported in the Rhode Island State Performance Plan as Indicator 17. In Phase I of the development of the SSIP, RIDE will be examining data and infrastructure to determine the new performance indicator and develop a theory of action to address the performance target. In Phase II, next year, RIDE will be developing improvement strategies on which the state will focus, that will lead to a measurable child-based result in Indicator 17.
RIDE is currently accepting input from key constituents on the development of this new Indicator. Please see this Power Point presentation of the Rhode Island SSIP (634KB). Interested parties may submit comments on the SSIP via email to Karen.Lovett@ride.ri.gov. The comment period will close on December 1, 2014.
