Local District Special Education Public Report for 2011-2012

The following is a report of the district’s performance for the 2011-2012 school year relative to state targets in priority areas for Special Education established by the United States Department of Education.

In 2004, the IDEA was reauthorized to include a requirement that states develop a State Performance Plan establishing rigorous targets for student outcomes and compliance in priority areas. Each year following the submission of the original SPP, each state submits an Annual Performance Report (APR) indicating whether or not the state met each annual target and detailing activities implemented to make progress.

IDEA 2004 also requires states to issue public reports for each LEA, each year, detailing the LEA’s performance relative to the state’s SPP targets. Data from NJSMART, EVVRS, LEA monitoring, mediation & Due Process databases, and survey data are used to develop each public report. For some indicators, where surveys are used to collect information, district data will only be reported when a district was part of the representative sample of districts surveyed for the specified school year. More information regarding the SPP/APR can be found at http://www.state.nj.us/education/specialed/info/spp/

A description of how data were calculated regarding the performance of each local school district, for each of the SPP/APR indicators, can be found by clicking the name of the indicator.
