As part of the requirements for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004, all states develop and submit a State Performance Plan (SPP) and Annual Performance Report (APR). The SPP contains baseline data, projected targets, and activities to achieve those targets that will improve the outcomes for children with disabilities. The APR serves to inform both the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), and the public on progress toward meeting the targets set in the State Performance Plan.
According to the federal regulations that implement the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (34 C.F.R. §300.602), SEAs are required to make the State Performance Plan (SPP) and the Annual Performance Report (APR) available to the public. The FFY 2012 SPP and APR can be found at http://www.azed.gov/special-education/resources/spp-apr/.
