History public reporting
History: Public Reporting Report (

  • The state reports annually to the public on the performance of each LEA on the targets in the SPP on the GaDOE website.

  • Basis for this plan is a detailed data and infrastructure analysis that will guide the development of the strategies to increase the State’s capacity to structure and lead meaningful change in LEA's


State systemic improvement plan1
State Systemic Improvement Plan Report (

  • While the primary focus of SSIP is on improvement of children and youth outcomes, the State must also address in its SSIP how the State will use its general supervision systems to improve implementation of the requirements of Part B of the IDEA.

But… Report (

  • States are not seeing improved results for children and youth with disabilities:

    • In many locations, a significant achievement gap exists between students with disabilities and their general education peers

    • Students are dropping out of school

    • Many students who do graduate with a regular education diploma are not college and career ready
