Parent Public Forum for Pennsylvania's State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report
Wednesday August 18, 2021 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM - Webinar
During this virtual public forum, The Bureau of Special Education is seeking input and recommendations from parents about targets and improvement strategies that the state should consider for Pennsylvania's State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 requires states to develop a State Performance Plan (SPP) and Annual Performance Report (APR) that includes measurable and rigorous targets for federally required indicators of compliance and results. These targets provide a framework and influence the work of states and local education agencies (LEAs) to guide improvement efforts and achieve positive outcomes for students with disabilities. States are now revising their SPP to cover the six years through Federal Fiscal Year 2025.
The Bureau of Special Education (BSE) will be reviewing and revising its current SPP targets to submit to the US Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs on February 1, 2022. To accomplish this, the BSE is seeking broad stakeholder input and recommendations about targets and improvement strategies that the state should implement. We invite input from parents, members of parent centers, parents from local and statewide advocacy and advisory committees interested in special education services for students with disabilities.
- Parents from local and statewide advocacy and advisory committees
