A report summarizing States' reports on the participation and performance of students with disabilities by (a) submitting annual performance reports (APRs) to the U.S. Department of Education, and (b) publicly reporting state assessment data via their Web sites and other communication avenues. Both APRs and public reports provide important information, although the two may be slightly different in how the data are presented. This report analyzes the public reporting of disaggregated data for students with disabilities. It is the eleventh such report by NCEO, and this analysis, for school year 2006-2007, also marks the fifth data cycle since the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001.
The Center is supported through a Cooperative Agreement (#H326G050007)
with the Research to Practice Division, Office of Special Education
Programs, U.S. Department of Education. Additional support for targeted
projects, including those on English language learners, is provided by
other federal and state agencies. Opinions expressed herein do
not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. Department of Education or
