29th Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the "Individuals with Disabilities Education Act," 2007. Volume 1
Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, US Department of Education
The "29th Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 2007" focuses on key state performance data in accordance with recommendations of the President's Commission on Excellence in Special Education. Volume 1 focuses on the children and students being served under "IDEA" ("Individuals with Disabilities Education Act") nationally and provides profiles of individual states' special education environments. Volume 2 of the report contains the state-reported data tables for "IDEA", Part B, developed from the Office of Special Education Programs' (OSEP's) Data Analysis System (DANS). Part B of "IDEA" provides funds to states to assist them in providing a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to children ages 3 through 21 with disabilities who are in need of special education and related services. Volume 3 of the report contains the state-reported data tables for "IDEA", Part C. Part C provides funds to states to assist them in developing and implementing statewide, comprehensive, coordinated, multidisciplinary interagency systems to make early intervention services available to all children from birth to age 3 with disabilities and their families. This "29th Annual Report to Congress" follows the 2006--i.e., the 28th annual report--in sequence and continues to focus on "IDEA" results and accountability. It is the first annual report to have three volumes. In the 28th and previous editions, volume 2 consisted of data tables and data notes for Parts B and C. With the 2007 or 29th annual report, volume 2 now contains only Part B data tables and data notes, and volume 3 contains data tables and data notes for Part C. This division was done to accommodate the increased length of the report. Volume 1 of the "2007 Annual Report to Congress" is comparable to the 2006 or 28th annual report throughout the first three sections. Sections IV and V are new to this edition and were added to provide information on two programs established with the 2004 "IDEA" reauthorization. A summary of the five sections that make up volume 1 of this report is presented. Appendices include: (1) Data Notes for "IDEA", Part C; and (2) Data Notes for "IDEA", Part B. (Contains 46 tables and 38 figures.) [For the related reports, see "29th Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 2007.
