requirements in idea
Monitor disproportionate representation

Over and Under

Overall, Disability, Suspension and Expulsion, Placement

Calculate and report on SPP Indicators

#4 Suspension and Expulsion

#9 Overall Disproportionality

#10 Disproportionality by Disability

Requirements in IDEA
  • Determine which districts are significantly disproportionate
    • Overall, Disability, Suspension and Expulsion, Placement
    • Direct them to use 15% of their IDEA grant to address the disproportionality
monitor
Monitor
  • IDEA requires calculations of disproportionate representation related to
    • Child Find
    • Disability
    • Placement
    • Discipline
  • If a district is determined to have disproportionate representation, then the SEA must conduct a review of policies, procedures and practices related to
    • Child Find, Assessment, IEP development, or in the case of discipline
    • Suspension and Expulsion, Positive Behavior Intervention, Due Process
  • If noncompliance is identified the SEA must ensure that policies, procedures and practices are corrected
  • Must be done, regardless of SPP requirements
spp indicators 4b 9 and 10
SPP Indicators 4b, 9 and 10
  • SPP requires calculation of disproportionate representation and calculation of the percent of districts whose disproportionate representation is due to inappropriate policies, procedures and practices.
  • LEA level calculations are reported to the public
significant disproportionality
Significant Disproportionality
  • IDEA requires calculations of significant disproportionality related to
    • Child Find
    • Disability
    • Placement
    • Discipline
  • District is considered significantly disproportionate if they fail on any one calculation
  • State has responsibility of determining calculation
  • Does not have to use the same calculation as for monitoring or the SPP
  • State must direct district to use 15% of IDEA grant to address disproportionality
calculation
Calculation
  • As of the last SPP we have adopted the E-formula:

The E-formula is defined as:

E = A + SQRT [A*(100-A)/N]

  • E = Maximum percentage of the total special education enrollment in a district allowed for a specific ethnic group
  • A = Percentage of the same ethnic group in general education in the district
  • N = The total special education enrollment in a district, as defined in E.
slide7

An Example – Upper Value

E = A + SQRT [A*(100-A)/N]

N= Total Enrollment of the District (50,000)

1 E for African Am = 20.8 + SQRT(20.8*(100-20.8)/50,000)

= 20.98

slide8

An Example - Lower

E = A - SQRT [A*(100-A)/N]

N= Total Enrollment of the District (50,000)

1 E for African Am = 20.8 - SQRT(20.8*(100-20.8)/50,000)

= 20.62
