DPI’s integrated monitoring system is sustained at its core by various proactive elements. DPI provides training and technical assistance on a wide variety of topics, including those associated with the 20 indicators in the State Performance Plan (SPP). In addition, IDEA Part B discretionary grants are distributed for statewide systems change initiatives to ensure the greatest impact on the maximum number of children with disabilities in Wisconsin. The department is committed to maintaining statewide grants that are central to themes in IDEA and support the SPP indicators. These initiatives provide valuable information to LEAs, parents, and students with disabilities. The Focused Review of Improvement Indicators (FRII) modules are also available to any district that would like to conduct a voluntary self-assessment of the improvement indicators.
Please see the individual indicator pages below for related training and technical assistance.
