Our objective is to assist LEAs in meeting federal, state, and local mandates for evaluation, reevaluation, testing methodologies, procedural guidelines, and services to improve student and school district performance. Staff development is provided to assessment personnel on legal updates, compliance, best practice for student services, and assessment issues in special education. Emphasis is placed on an integrative assessment approach and appropriate evaluation practices. We offer a wide variety of staff development activities designed to increase local districts' capacity to provide appropriate full and individual evaluations for students with special needs or those suspected to have a disability. We also provide professional development, technical assistance, and a support system to school districts, as well as leadership for evaluation personnel to enable educational communities to operate efficiently.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004), Section 616(b), requires each state to develop a six-year performance plan. This State Performance Plan (SPP) evaluates the State’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of IDEA and illustrates how the State will continuously improve upon this implementation.

LEAs must submit data for five indicators: 7, 11, 12, 13, and 14. This data is submitted through the TEASE online application. You may access this information using the link above.

**Data for these indicators must be submitted by all ALL DISTRICTS (including charter schools)**
