Massachusetts State Performance Plan (MA SPP) and Annual Performance Reports (MA APR) Performance Indicators

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) says that each state must submit a state performance plan/annual performance report (SPP/APR) to the federal government. This SPP/APR explains how the state is working to meet IDEA's requirements. SPP/APRs include:

  • Indicators that measure child and family outcomes. These are called "Performance Indicators."
  • Indicators that measure compliance with IDEA. These are called "Compliance Indicators."

You can see school district data for our state's Performance and Compliance Indicators on the Massachusetts School and District Profiles website.

Every year on February 1st, Massachusetts submits our state's SPP/APR to the U.S. Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP).
