27th Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the "Individuals with Disabilities Education Act," 2005. Volume 1
US Department of Education
This 2005 Annual Report to Congress has two volumes. This volume focuses on the children and students being served under the "Individuals with Disabilities Education Act" ("IDEA") and provides profiles of individual states' special education environments. Section 1 of this volume, The National Picture, contains the child/student-focused material, presented in a question-and-answer format. It contains three subsections: infants and toddlers served under "IDEA," Part C; children ages 3 through 5 served under "IDEA," Part B; and students ages 6 through 21 served under "IDEA," Part B. Information available about each group of children/students is presented in the different subsections. To the extent possible, the data are presented through graphics, short tables and bulleted text. Section 2, The State Picture, contains state-level performance data. These state profiles include number of school districts, public school enrollment, per-pupil expenditures and percentage of children living below the poverty level. For Part B, the profiles also report data for the Office of Special Education Programs' (OSEP's) performance goals for graduation and dropout. For Part C, the profiles include the lead agency for early intervention services and the number of infants and toddlers receiving early intervention services. The profiles also show the percentage of infants and toddlers served under Part C. Finally, Section 3, Rank-Order Tables, presents tables of states rank-ordered by their reported data for exiting, dropout, educational environments, early intervention services and early intervention settings. OSEP uses these tables as part of its monitoring activities. Part C and B Data Notes are appended. (Contains 39 figures, 7 footnotes, and 14 tables.)
