IDEA Indicator: Special Education

WISEdata app icon

IDEA Indicator: Upon completion of the initial special education evaluation, the student either will or will not be determined eligible to receive special education services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

If the student meets eligibility criteria, then they will become enrolled in special education services, and the value selected should be “True.” If the student does not meet eligibility criteria, then they are dismissed and the value selected should be “False.”

Note for Pilot Year:

Indicator 11 data collection is currently in its pilot school year for the 2022-23 school year. The Indicator 11 project will help record the date of parental consent and the date of the evaluation for special education eligibility in WISEdata Portal and WISEdash for Districts. It will also improve the collection, quality, and use of our data about how students are receiving timely evaluation for special education eligibility, which is their right in federal law.

For more information refer to the Timely Special Ed Evaluation data element page.
