Special education reports released to public
Information regarding school districts’ performance on improving the educational outcomes of students with disabilities was made available to the public last month and is now online. Results of early childhood services for infants and toddlers with developmental delays are also available.
Released annually, the State Performance Plan Report is divided into two parts. One part addresses the federal special education program known as Part B. This report identifies school districts’ ability to meet federal special education requirements on several indicators, along with performance targets. The report is based mainly on data from the 2011-12 school year with exception of Graduation Rate, Dropout Rate, and Suspension/Expulsion. Statewide data also is available.

The other part of the State Performance Plan Report addresses the federal special education program known as Part C. This report identifies the ability of early childhood services, called the Birth to Three program in South Dakota, to meet 14 federal special education requirements. Statewide and regional data is available.
