SPPI 12: Measurement

State Performance Plan Indicator (SPPI) 12 measures the percent of children referred by Part C prior to age 3, who are found eligible for Part B, and who have an individualized education program (IEP) developed and implemented by their third birthdays.

SPPI 12 Data Submission in the Texas Student Data System (TSDS)
Beginning with the 2021-22 data collection, local education agencies (LEAs) will submit SPPI 12 data in the Texas Student Data System (TSDS) Child Find (CF) collection. Child Find consists of SPPI 11 and SPPI 12. This change improves data quality through the collection of student level data while streamlining the data collection process and reducing the duplicative reporting burden placed on LEAs. The Child Find collection for the school year 2021-22 opened for LEAs to begin promoting data on September 13, 2021 and will close on July 28, 2022. Additional information concerning the TSDS Child Find collection can be found in the Child Find To the Administrator Addressed Correspondence.
