Results Driven Accountability

Results Driven Accountability-Special Education Indicators

The Office of Special Education’s (OSE) accountability system, Results Driven Accountability (RDA), shifts the accountability efforts from a primary emphasis on compliance to a framework that includes improved results for students with disabilities. A Results Driven Accountability Planning Tool and Results Driven Accountability (RDA) Guiding Document, November 2020 have been provided to all corporations. These contain both a breakdown of data, as well as assistance in root cause analysis and creation of a targeted action plan. Upon completion of the tool, the OSE and/or the Indiana Resource Network will provide more targeted technical assistance to corporations.

Determination Letters

The IDOE issues LEAs Findings of Noncompliance for Compliance Indicators 4, 9, 10, 11, 12, and/or 13. LEAs are required to correct the identified noncompliance as soon as possible but in no case greater than one year. LEAs are notified of any noncompliance annually. Letters notifying LEAs of Status of Compliance are sent out in the fall of each year. (If you are looking for information on a particular LEA, use the "Find" feature in your PDF reader and search by corporation number.)

Findings of Noncompliance

Federal Reporting

IDEA 2004 requires each state to develop a State Performance Plan (SPP) outlining the State’s monitoring of each of the 17 federal indicators, as well as Indiana’s plan for improving the statewide performance of each indicator. The SPP is updated each year in February to include any changes to Indiana’s procedures and practices. As a companion to the SPP, IDEA 2004 requires each state to submit an Annual Performance Report (APR) on the processes and results outlined in the SPP. The APR is submitted to the federal government on February 1 of each year and includes Indiana’s statewide performance on each Indicator for the subsequent school year. The report also includes an update on the progress of the programs outlined in the SPP.

Other Public Reporting

In addition to updating its SPP and submitting its APR in February each year, each state is also required to publicly post other data and information throughout the year.
