2017 State Determinations
In making state determinations, OSEP uses compliance and results data, giving equal weight to each. OSEP’s accountability framework, called Results Driven Accountability (RDA), brings into focus the educational results and functional outcomes for children with disabilities while balancing those results with the compliance requirements of IDEA.
IDEA details four categories of determination:
- Meets the requirements and purposes of the IDEA
- Needs assistance in implementing the requirements of the IDEA
- Needs intervention in implementing the requirements of the IDEA
- Needs substantial intervention in implementing the requirements of the IDEA
Under the criteria used in 2017, Wisconsin was found to meet the requirements of Part B of IDEA. We recognize and appreciate the efforts of our LEAs to ensure compliance and improve results for children and youth with disabilities.
