In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004), each state must have in place a State Performance Plan (SPP) to evaluate the state’s efforts to meet the requirements and purposes of the implementation of IDEA. The SPP is a six-year plan which describes Connecticut’s performance on 20 indicators.

The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) in the U.S. Department of Education requires that states report annually to the public on the performance of each local education agency (LEA) on 16 of the 20 indicators. In addition, the state must assign each LEA one of four “ratings” each year, based on the LEA’s performance on the SPP indicators. The four ratings are:  Meets Requirements, Needs Assistance, Needs Intervention, or Needs Substantial Intervention.

Connecticut is one of a few states that has posted the LEA determinations on the state dept. of education web site.
