The Special Education School District Data Profile is prepared in accordance with the requirement of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Each State must have 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 New York State's performance on 17 indicators. States must report annually to the public on
the performance of the State in an Annual Performance Report (APR) and each school district against the State's targets. New York State's SPP and the
APR that describe these indicators in detail are available at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/specialed/spp/.
The following report reflects only quantifiable data collected by the State. Since performance of a school district in any indicator may be the result of unique circumstances within a district, readers are encouraged to consider information provided by the district's administration in interpreting these data.
* Districts are only held accountable for the performance of students when there are at least 30 students in the total cohort.
Participation in and performance on rate is suppressed if less than 40 students with disabilities are reported as enrolled for participation rate.
Competitive employment means that youth have worked for pay at or above the minimum wage in a setting with others who are nondisabled for a period of 20 hours a week for at least 90 days at any time in the year since leaving high school. This includes military employment.
Enrolled in other postsecondary education or training means youth have been enrolled on a full- or part-time basis for at least one complete term at any time in the year since leaving high school in an education or training program (e.g., Job Corps; adult education; workforce development program; adult rehabilitation service programs; or other)
* State targets will be reported in subsequent years. They may be found in the State Performance Report posted at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/specialed/spp/ .
You can do a side-by-side comparison of the same dataset between two or three location and/or years. There are two ways to accomplish this.
If you're creating a custom comparison, you'll need to navigate to this report for another location and/or year and use the + icon on that page to add it to the comparison engine.
