Alignment of the State Performance Plan Child Outcomes and The DRDP (2015) Measures

Download or Print PDF: 

Each year, the federal Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) requires states to report on three child outcomes for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers as part of their State Performance Plan (SPP). The following tables illustrate how the measures of the DRDP (2015) Infant/Toddler View and Preschool View correspond to these three SPP child outcomes. The California Department of Education uses DRDP results submitted by special education programs to calculate the children’s progress on the SPP child outcomes.

The three SPP Child Outcomes are:

      (A) Social relationships, which includes getting along with other children and relating well with adults,

      (B) Use of knowledge and skills, which refers to thinking, reasoning, problem-solving, and early literacy and math skills, and

      (C) Taking action to meet needs, which includes feeding, dressing, self-care, and following rules related to health and safety.
