State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) requires each state to have in place a State Performance Plan (SPP). This plan describes and evaluates the state’s efforts to implement the requirements of the IDEA Part B. The SPP includes annual targets for 17 indicators identified by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP).
The SPP provides the baseline data, targets and improvement activities, timelines, and resources established by the state for each indicator.
States must also report annually on their performance on the targets identified in the SPP through an Annual Performance Report (APR). The APR reflects the state’s progress toward meeting its goals. The APR provides the target data, an explanation of any slippage, and additional information from the state for each indicator.
The SPP and APR are due together annually in February as the SPP/APR. The SPP/APR includes data from the previous school year, or Federal Fiscal Year (FFY). The report is available to the public after the OSEP’s review.

Indicator 17: State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP)
Indicator 17 requires each state to develop a State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP). This is a comprehensive, ambitious, yet achievable multi-year plan for improving results for children with disabilities.
To assess the SSIP’s effectiveness, each state has to address a measurable
student-level outcome through the SSIP. This student-level outcome is known as the State Identified Measurable Result (SIMR). Improving a SIMR is an indication of the SSIP’s effectiveness. The OSE chose early literacy as Michigan’s SIMR.
The OSEP tasked states with implementing their SSIP over three phases. An SSIP report was submitted annually with each year’s SPP/APR in 2014, 2015, and 2016. The information is available through the OSEP GRADS360° website.
