State Performance Plan / Annual Performance Report

Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA), states are required to report the progress of students with disabilities in important areas of performance. This page provides important information about the Rhode Island Performance Report.

State Performance Plan 2021-2025 Target Setting Information  -  Feedback Requested

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires each state to develop a state performance plan/annual performance report (SPP/APR) that evaluates the state’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of the IDEA and describes how the state will improve its implementation. The SPP/APRs include indicators that measure child and family outcomes and other indicators that measure compliance with the requirements of the IDEA.

RIDE is soliciting input for the performance measures of the state performance plan (SPP). RIDE has analyzed data, examined trends in performance and has set draft targets for the 17 Indicators established by the US Department of Education. Data visualizations of these Indicators are available.

RIDE is seeking the input of stakeholders with a vested interest in these measures and invites interested individuals to submit comments to Susan.Wood@ride.ri.gov on or before January 15, 2022.

Annual Performance Report (FFY 2019)


District State Performance Plan (SPP) Reporting

The State shall report annually to the public on the performance of each local educational agency (LEA) located in the State on the targets in the State's Performance Plan.

SPP Public Reporting Data Visualizations

The State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) is a comprehensive, multi-year plan that focuses on improving results for children with disabilities within OSEP's focus on Result Driven Accountability (RDA). SSIP development included data analysis, infrastructure analysis, a state-identified measurable result, the selection of coherent improvement strategies, and a theory of action.  RI reports annually on progress with the SSIP to OSEP in the Rhode Island State Performance Plan as Indicator 17.

Theory of Action

If...

... supports are provided for data-based decision making to inform intensive, individualized instruction in mathematics throughout the state,

then...

... LEAs and schools will change systems and adult behaviors to increase their capacity to improve the proficiency level of students with disabilities, so that

... we will reach our student achievement goal!

We hypothesize that improving intensive and individualized instruction within a systematic framework of culturally and linguistically responsive supports for students with disabilities, particularly elementary Grades 3-5 Hispanic and Black children with specific learning disabilities in urban settings, will improve their performance on State assessments of math by 4% by Federal Fiscal Year 2018.

 

Logic Model

SiMR: Improve the mathematics achievement for Hispanic and Black students with specific learning disabilities in Grades 3-5 by 4% by fiscal year 2018 (2018-19) on the statewide assessment.

Federal Reporting

Theory of Action (Revisions)

If professional learning and coaching are provided on delivery of accessible, evidence-based math instruction, including data-based individualization (DBI), throughout the state,

Then LEAS and schools will change systems and adult behaviors to improve teacher and leader knowledge of and capacity to implement evidence-based math instruction across the Tiers of MTSS and within specially designed instruction (SDI) so that


Students with IEPs will demonstrate increased outcomes on math growth data, math screening and progress monitoring data.
