Develop a deep understanding of State Performance Plan indicators (13) and their importance in shaping improvement and leadership efforts 2. Understand how SPP data is calculated on an annual basis 3. Identify key reflective questions for equity and systems level improvement in relation to special education 4. Use key data findings to draft a plan for leadership teams to engage in the work of planning, improving, and monitoring the impact and effectiveness of special education systems, policies, and supports.
