SPPI 11: Measurement


State Performance Plan Indicator (SPPI) 11 measures the percent of children who were evaluated within 60 days of receiving parental consent for initial evaluation or, if the State establishes a timeframe within which the
evaluation must be conducted, within that timeframe. Texas establishes a state timeline in Texas Administrative Code §89.1011.

 SPPI 11 Data Submission in the Texas Student Data System (TSDS) 
Beginning with the 2021-22 data collection, local education agencies (LEAs) will submit SPPI 11 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.
