SECTION 4
CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT MONITORING PROCESS (CIMP)

The U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) has revised its federal monitoring practices. OSEP now requires each state to conduct a self-assessment of its implementation of IDEA 2004 and submit a summary report. This is a data-driven process that focuses on improved results for children with disabilities. The report is based on the work of cluster teams of stakeholders who review relevant data to determine the level of compliance/non-compliance with state and federal special education requirements. Strategies for addressing identified compliance issues are also included.

This process grew from a bi-annual progress report to an annual progress report. The Annual Performance Report is submitted each year to OSEP. The report is submitted each February and reviews the performance goals and objectives from the previous year.

Annual Progress Report (APR) and State Performance Plan (SPP)

The State is required to report annually on established goals for the performance of children with disabilities that are the same as the State’s definition of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), including the State’s objectives for progress. Graduation and drop out rates, as well as other factors deemed by the State will be addressed. These indicators must be consistent, to the extent appropriate, with any other goals and standards for children. Performance indicators must be established for the State to be able to assess progress toward achieving goals, including measurable annual objectives. The State will report annually to the Secretary and the public on the progress of children with disabilities.
