JUNEAU - Alaska is one of 31 jurisdictions to meet the implementation requirements of Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act for fiscal year 2008, the latest year to be reviewed, the U.S. Department of Education said.
Part B serves people with disabilities from age 3 through 21.
Under the law, each state and territory must develop a State Performance Plan that evaluates the jurisdiction's efforts to implement IDEA and to describe how it will improve its implementation. The plans include baseline data, measurable and rigorous targets and improvement activities for 20 indicators such as graduation and dropout rates, assessments and complaints and hearings.
