State Performance Plan/ Annual Performance Report

The SPP/APR includes 17 compliance and results indicators that measure student and family outcomes and other indicators that measure compliance with the requirements of the IDEA.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (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/APR includes 17 compliance and results indicators that measure student and family outcomes and other indicators that measure compliance with the requirements of the IDEA. For more information, please refer to the SPP/APR Indicator Cards and Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) FFY 2020-2025 Measurement Table. Each year, the SPP/APR is submitted on February 1, and states must report against the targets in their SPP/APR.

The Hawai’i State Department of Education (Department) works with Hawaii's State advisory panel, the Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC), and other educational and community partners to establish measurable and rigorous annual performance targets.

Lag Year Data
Some indicators use data from years prior to the reporting year, known as “lag year” data. For example, Indicators 1, 2, and 4 use data from the 2021-2022 school year for the FFY 2022 APR due Feb. 1, 2024, while all other indicators use data from the 2022-2023 school year.

Slippage
When analyzing data, if data for a specific indicator did not meet the identified SPP target and worsened from the previous year more than the slippage criteria for that indicator, then the data reflects the state has experienced slippage in this indicator. The data collected for the indicator show the state is not making the expected progress on that indicator.
