SPP/APR Basics What You Need to Know Training Series
These self-directed training modules provide a basic understanding of the IDEA Part C and Part B, Section 619 State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) indicators and their requirements.
Part C and Part B, Section 619 coordinators and their staff are the target audience for the modules. However, a wide range of stakeholders who are interested in learning more about the SPP/APR requirements, including parents, may find the modules useful.
Each module summarizes key points in the SPP/APR Measurement Tables, including a description of the indicator, its measurement, and reporting requirements. Each module includes additional information as needed, based on the indicator's requirements, along with indicator-specific resources.

- C-1 Timely Services

SPP/APR Checklists and Tips
The Part C and Part B SPP/APR Checklists and Tips have been developed to support states in annually preparing their SPP/APRs. The checklists are organized by indicator and the fields as they appear in the SPP/APR submission platform. This format will help states determine if all required fields have been completed. Tips are also provided to be sure all relevant instructions are addressed for each indicator. For Part B, preschool indicators B-6, B-7, B-12, and B-17 (if the SiMR is a preschool outcome) are included.
