Individuals With Disabilities Education
Improvement Act Of 2004 (IDEA)
Every year, districts receive a special education profile that shows whether they are meeting their goals, over time, for students with disabilities. The design of the special education profile helps districts use data about the academic growth of groups of students to keep improving their special education programs. This data gives schools answers about kindergarten readiness, achievement levels, preparedness for life beyond high school, and services for children with disabilities.
