Child Find (SPP 11) and
Early Childhood Transition (SPP 12)

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004 mandates that all districts/charters report on 14 specific indicators related to the provision of special education services. This is done through a State Performance Plan (SPP).
The FIE Interactive Timeline tool developed by ESC-20 is intended to assist school districts, charter schools, parents, and evaluation providers in determining the appropriate compliance schedule & state performance plan indicator for each student undergoing Full & Individual Initial Evaluation.

The Special Education Assessment Log is intended to assist Local Education Agencies (LEAs) with their data collection outlined in the Texas Education Agency (TEA) Special Education Strategic Plan, Corrective Action 2.c. The required data includes:
  • The total number of requests for evaluation made during the 2018-2019 school year by either a parent or a public agency beginning on July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019;
  • The total number of requests made in which the reason for request indicates a claim that the child should have been referred for an initial evaluation prior to the 2018-2019 school year; and
  • The total number of children found eligible and the Admission Review and Dismissal (ARD) committee determines additional services are needed, taking into consideration supports and services previously provided
    • The subtotal number for types of services to include four (4) categories for reporting; related services, supplementary aids and services, program modifications, and supports for personnel (students may count in multiple categories if identified in the IEP)
    • The subtotal number for timelines for implementation to include two (2) categories for reporting; up to six (6) months, or more than six (6) months up to one (1) year (students may count in multiple categories if counted in multiple types of services described here.)
Child Find (SPP 11)

SPP Indicator 11 is related to Child Find and measures the “percent of children with parental consent to evaluate who were evaluated and eligibility determined within 60 days (or State established timelines).” This is a compliance indicator, and data is collected and reported by the district/charter to Texas Education Agency (TEA) through the TEA Login (TEAL) System.

Child Find materials are available to assist districts in locating children in their attendance areas who may be suspected of having a disability requiring special education services.

Early Childhood Transition (SPP 12)

SPP Indicator 12 is related to Early Childhood Transition and measures the “percent of children referred by Part C prior to age 3, who are found eligible for Part B, and who have an individual education program (IEP) developed and implemented by their third birthdays.” This is a compliance indicator, and data is collected and reported by the district/charter to TEA through the TEA Login (TEAL) System.

SPP Indicators 11 & 12 are a single application within the TEAL System.
