  • Indicator 12 is a percentage of students referred by Part C / Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) prior to age 3 who are found eligible for Part B / District Special Education Services and who have an IEP (Individualized Education Program) developed and implemented by their third birthday.

    The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004), Section 616(b)(2)(B), requires states to collect data from LEA's for State Performance Plan (SPP) indicators 1-14 in order to report data for the State Performance Plan / Annual Performance Report.
