Biennial Performance Report (FY 98, 99) for Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. State of Delaware.
Delaware State Dept. of Education, Dover.
This report provides data on the State of Delaware's performance goals and indicators for children with disabilities, their participation in assessments, the rate of long-range suspensions and expulsions, and disproportionalities based on race in identification and placement. The report is intended to serve as a baseline for future reporting on the state's use of federal funds under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Part B. The first section identifies three broad goals and then specifies 18 performance indicators. These indicators are then specifically discussed. Discussion of indicators concerned with the state's assessment of progress focuses on participation in assessments, the Delaware Alternate Portfolio Assessment, student performance on the Delaware Student Testing Program (tables detail student outcomes by test and grade), number of graduates, and number of dropouts. This is followed by discussion and tables about long range suspensions and expulsions of students with disabilities and numbers of children served in various educational settings. The final section offers data and analysis of disproportionality based on race including identification of children with disabilities in general and with specific disabilities by race/ethnicity and placement of children in particular educational settings by race/ethnicity. A final table summarizes activities and expenditures for IDEA Part B, fiscal years 98 and 99. (DB)
