WDE Division of Special Education Programs periodically requests stakeholder input on a variety of topics and initiatives in order to ensure that state-level activities reflect the real needs and priorities of Wyoming students with disabilities and their families.  WDE will consider all stakeholder input received in response to solicitations for input.

State Performance Plan: Stakeholder Input

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires each state to develop a State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) that evaluates the state’s efforts to implement the requirements and purposes of the IDEA and describes how the state will improve its implementation. The SPP/APR includes 17 results indicators that measure child and family outcomes and other indicators that measure compliance with the requirements of the IDEA.

The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) is seeking broad stakeholder input to assist in setting targets for students with disabilities receiving special education services. The feedback will inform the development of the 2021-2026 SPP/APR.

Who should provide input? Parents of students with disabilities, individuals with disabilities, school district personnel, educators, advocacy groups, and the general public.

The proposed targets for each of the required results indicators of the SPP are based on historical and projected data. Stakeholders are asked to review the information about each indicator and provide feedback via the corresponding “Submit input” links.

Deadline for providing feedback: Dec. 17, 2021
