​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Kentucky  Special Education Data Dashboard

The Kentucky Special Education Child Count Overview​​ was created in collaboration with the Kentucky Center for Statistics (KYSTATS)  for the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) Office of Special Education and Early Learning (OSEEL) using Child Count Data that is required by the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA).

Kentucky Special Education Indicator Dashboard

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires states to submit a State Performance Plan (SPP) and to annually report data on the status toward meeting the targets on the indicators contained in this plan. This report of status is called the Annual Performance Report (APR) and is submitted on or around February first of each year. To determine Kentucky's status toward achieving these goals the Office of Special Education and Early Learning (OSEEL) collects data from local school districts, parents, and other sources. These data are reviewed, interpreted, and reported in the APR. 

The Kentucky Special Education Indicator Dashboar​d​​ uses data from the APR and includes four dashboards: School Districts, Special Education Cooperatives, Early Childhood Regional Training Centers, and District Profiles. 

Kentucky Fast Facts IDEA Data

The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) provides OSEP Fast Facts which summarizes data related to students served under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). In response, the Kentucky Department of Education's (KDE's) Office of Special Education and Early Learning (OSEEL) has developed the Kentucky Fast Facts infographics. The data presented includes information collected through child count, educational environments and settings, discipline and exiting data collections. If you would like more information on the OSEP's Fast F​acts, please visit OSEP Fast Facts - Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
