District-Level Performance Data

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) requires states to annually report to the public on the performance of each local education agency (LEA) on the targets in the State Performance Plan (SPP) and Annual Performance Report (APR). These required reports must include the state targets for specified indicators, provide the LEA performance compared to those targets and indicate whether or not the LEA met the targets. States are required to include Indicators 1 through 14 in future annual reports; however, due to changes in measurements and data sources, only the following indicators are required this year.

  • Graduation rates (Indicator 1);
  • Dropout rates (Indicator 2);
  • Participation and performance on state assessments (Indicator 3);
  • Discrepancies in discipline rates (Indicator 4);
  • Least restrictive environment for school-age students (Indicator 5);
  • Preschool outcomes (Indicator 7);
  • Parent involvement (Indicator 8);
  • Disproportionality across all disability categories (Indicator 9);
  • Disproportionality in specific disability categories (Indicator 10);
  • Completion of initial evaluations within 60 days (Indicator 11);
  • Transition from Part C to Part B services (Indicator 12);
  • Secondary transition planning (Indicator 13); and
  • Postschool outcomes (Indicator 14).

This report includes 2011-2012 data, as it must reflect the performance of each district in relation to the state targets and performance reported in the 2011-2012 APR, submitted February 15, 2013. Additionally, the report includes data specific to students with disabilities, unless otherwise specified.

The Excel file entitled “2011-2012 District-Level Performance Data” contains multiple columns for each indicator required in this year's data report. The file also contains a "Data Notes" worksheet to provide a brief description of each indicator.
The spreadsheets have an “automatic filtering” function. This filtering makes it possible for a reader using a version of Excel from 2003 or later to see the results of a single district, or to see results from all districts having specific data between selected values or all districts within a specific county or region, for example.

Reporting Conventions

When possible, data from Ohio's accountability system have been used for district-level reporting of SPP indicators. Thus, the columns for Indicators 1 through 3 contain the same Education Management Information System (EMIS) data used for determining Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and creating the Local Report Card (LRC), filtered to reflect results of only students with disabilities.
"NC" indicates that the data for a particular rating are not reported due to small group size, in order to ensure student privacy. "NC" can also mean that the LEA reported no students for the indicator. Not all districts and community schools will have data for all indicators.
