State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP)

In light of new direction from the U.S. Office of Special Education Program (OSEP) on Results Driven Accountability for the Early Intervention annual performance reports, the states lead agencies are to provide a State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) with a focus on a State-identified Measureable Result (SIMR). Following our July 8th webinar on SSIP with stakeholders, and as we further the collaboration with our stakeholders, the Department of Developmental Services has formed the SSIP task force whose primary purpose is to provide root cause analysis of possible SIMRs, one of which would be submitted to OSEP as the State's SIMR for California's Part C.
