The Annual Report to Congress on IDEA: Uses Outside the Beltway PPT

IDEA requires the U.S. Department of Education to submit an annual report to Congress on the progress of the nation in implementing IDEA to improve early intervention, educational results, and functional outcomes for infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities. During this presentation at the 2019 OSEP Leadership Conference, participants learned what the annual report to Congress is all about, how they can use this concise data resource, and why they should care about it. They also learned how they can use it to inform policy and programmatic priorities and activities, identify data quality issues, and answer IDEA data-related and research questions.
