The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004) requires states to publicly report Local Education Agency (LEA) performance against targets established in the State Performance Plan (SPP) no later than 120 days after the State's submission of its Annual Performance Report (APR). The SPP is a six year plan that describes the state’s efforts to implement the requirements of IDEA and improve results for children with IEPs. It articulates how the District of Columbia will improve its performance on prescribed Indicators. The state must report, in its Annual Performance Report (APR), on its progress toward meeting the measurable and rigorous targets detailed in its SPP.
