MSDE Public Website of State Performance Plan Results

As required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004, the MSDE develops State Performance Plans (SPPs) and Annual Performance Reports (APRs) for Maryland's early intervention and special education systems, consisent with 34 CRF sections 300.60 and 303.700. The plans serve as a blueprint for improvement for services to children with disabilities and their families in the State.

The website displays the State and local results for the indicators in the SPP. Annually, the most current data will be reported, along with updated narratives in the APR for comparison to the previous year's results.

The MSDE Public Website of State Performance Plan Results was developed and produced by the Maryland State Department of Education, Division of Special Education/Early Intervention Services, in collaboration with The Johns Hopkins University/Center for Technology in Education.
