Collection of Cyclical Indicators

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) is required to annually collect and report data on every indicator in the State Performance Plan (SPP), from every local educational agency. Indicator 7: Preschool Outcomes, Indicator 12: Preschool Transition, Part C to Part B, and Indicator 13: Transition Goals, Age 16+ will continue to be collected from every local educational agency (LEA) in every school year.

Indicator 8:  Parental Involvement, Indicator 11: Timely Evaluation, and Indicator 14: Post School Outcomes will be collected from every LEA once during a five year cycle.  These are referred to as the cyclical indicators. Approximately one-fifth of the districts in the state are included in each year’s cohort. Each cohort is representative of the state for pupil enrollment, areas of disability, gender, ethnicity and race. Public agencies with average daily membership of 50,000 or more participate in the collection of these indicators each year.

Starting in 2016-17, the LEAs that participate in the collection of the three cyclical indicators will move to a separate cycle from the Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment.

Cyclical Indicators

Indicator 8: Parental Involvement Percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities.
Indicator 11: Timely Evaluation Percent of children with parental consent to evaluate, who were evaluated and eligibility determined within 60 days.
Indicator 14: Post School Outcomes Percent of youth who had IEPs, are no longer in secondary school and who have been competitively employed, enrolled in some type of postsecondary school, or both, within one year of leaving high school.
