The Massachusetts Annual Performance Report: Students with Disabilities School Year 2002-03 provides an overview of activities related to special education specific to federally identified clusters for the period beginning July 1, 2002 and ending June 31, 2003.

However, under new reporting requirements, this analysis will now be conducted and produced annually and will be referred to as the Massachusetts Annual Performance Report (APR). This report responds to the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR), section 34 CFR 80.40.
