State Performance Plan
Annual Performance Report

The reauthorized Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), signed on December 3, 2004, requires each state to have in place a performance plan evaluating the state's implementation of Part B of the IDEA.  This plan, the State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) is required to be accessible to the public. 

The original State Performance Plan submitted on December 2, 2005, contains all subsequent federally required updates and clarifications through February 2, 2009.  Copies of the New Jersey Part B SPP/APR for FFY 2005 – FFY 2014 are available on the Department's website.  A copy of the most recent SPP/APR which was submitted in February 2020 is available through the United States Department of Education website.
