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.”

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


Questions about disability data should be directed to the DPI Special Education Team. Email:         Phone: 1 (608) 266-1781
