  1. Regular early childhood program and receiving the majority of special education and related services in the regular early childhood program; and
  2. Separate special education class, separate school, or residential facility.
  3. Receiving special education and related services in the home.

SPPI 6: Calculation

Preschool Environments Calculation Change
States must report five-year-old children with disabilities who are enrolled in kindergarten in SPPI 5. Five-year-old children with disabilities who are enrolled in preschool programs are included in SPPI 6.

SPPI 6: Data Source

The data source for SPPI 6 is the same data as used for reporting to the U.S. Department of Education under section 618 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), using the definitions in EDFacts file specificationC089. Local education agencies submit student level demographic data specific to the amount of time spent in special education locations during the fall Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) collection.
