Wisconsin's State Performance Plan Indicator 14

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (WDPI) is responsible for developing and implementing methods to ensure public agencies comply with requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004 and Subchapter V, Chapter 115, Wis. Stats. Refer to the WDPI Special Education Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment Guide for additional information.


 

State Performance Plan (SPP) Indicator 14 - Post School Outcomes

Public Law 108-446, Section 616(b) (IDEA 2004) requires the State Department of Education to develop and submit a five-year State Performance Plan (SPP) to the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) at the U.S. Department of Education. OSEP has identified three monitoring priorities and 20 indicators relating to the priority areas. Indicators are statements that are used to help quantify and/or qualify a monitoring priority. For each of the indicators, the State must establish measurable and rigorous targets for improvement over a five-year period of time

Indicator #14: "The percentage of youth who are no longer in secondary school, had Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) in effect at the time they left school, and were:

  1. Enrolled in higher education within one year of leaving high school.
  2. Enrolled in higher education or competitively employed within one year of leaving high school.
  3. Enrolled in higher education or in some other postsecondary education or training program; or competitively employed or in some other employment within one year of leaving high school. 20U.S.C1416(a)(3)(B)

As part of this effort, WDPI conducts cyclical compliance monitoring of public agencies. Cyclical compliance monitoring is conducted through a public agency self-assessment of special education requirements. The self-assessment includes selected requirements of IDEA 2004 and state law, which are closely related to improving student outcomes. The WDPI monitors approximately 440 LEAs during the current IDEA State Performance Plan cycle. Wisconsin's public agencies have been divided into five cohorts; one cohort is monitored each year beginning with the 2011-12 school year. Each cohort is representative of the state for pupil enrollment, areas of disability, gender, ethnicity and race. Public agencies with average daily membership of 50,000 or more participate in compliance monitoring activities each year. SPP: Special Education Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment.
