Birth to 3 Program - Annual Performance Report

The Annual Performance Report (APR) must be submitted annually by February 1 of each year. Federal requirements specify that the state shall report annually to the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) Secretary and the public on the performance of the state under the State Performance Plan (SPP).

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act requires that the DOE Secretary make an annual determination as to whether each state is meeting the requirements of the statute, based on the data submitted in the APR and other available information. Individuals can view these determination letters for Wisconsin on the DOE, Office of Special Education Program's (exit DHS) web site.

State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP)

The Wisconsin Birth to 3 Program SSIP Phase I can be found in the Annual Performance Report for FFY 2013 posted above; it is Indicator 11. The SSIP Phase I outlines the work completed by the Wisconsin Birth to 3 Program over the past year and a half. The goal is to develop a comprehensive system to increase positive outcomes for children and families participating in the Birth to 3 Program. The measurement chosen for the next five years will focus on increasing the social/emotional development of the children participating in the Birth to 3 Program. A system of continuous quality improvement will guide the word as the program moves forward with the SSIP Phase II.
