WV LEA RATINGS
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) required states to submit State Performance Plans (SPP) to the U.S. Department of Education four years ago. The SPP consists of 20 indicators, involving student outcomes and district compliance with special education requirements. Every year thereafter, each state must submit a report – Annual Performance Report (APR) that shows it has made progress on all 20 indicators of the SPP. Determination of progress or lack of progress is decided from data collected by the state from all school districts.
The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) in the United States Department of Education examines the APR and makes a “Determination” about the performance of the state on one of four levels: 1) Meets Requirements, 2) Needs Assistance, 3) Needs Intervention and 4) Needs Substantial Intervention. The state of West Virginia has received a “Needs Assistance” rating from OSEP for each of the past three years.
The State is then required to make a determination for each school district on one of the same four levels.
The rating for each of West Virginia’s school districts appear below. These ratings are based on the 2007-2008 school year.
