Family Public Forum for Pennsylvania’s State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report

PEAL Events Center

Seeking family leaders and advocates to have your voices heard and provide input into setting new targets aimed at the Results Indicators of success for students with disabilities in Pennsylvania.

PEAL is working with the Department of Education to support families and advocates to participate in meetings to identify indicators and targets, a way of measuring if schools are providing the support children with disabilities/Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and others need to succeed.

Your voices matter in this very important process.

Your participation in this additional public forum, exclusive to parents and advocates, will give you the opportunity to discuss targets toward improving outcomes for: graduation, drop-out, state assessments, suspension and expulsion, educational environments, school facilitated parent involvement, post-school outcomes, resolution sessions, and mediation agreements.

The Bureau of Special Education is providing an additional opportunity in the evening, for parents/advocates only, to provide input and recommendations about targets and improvement strategies that the state should implement for the nine school-age results indicators.

On August 18, 2021 from 6:00 – 8:30 pm the BSE with the support of the PEAL leadership team will provide an abbreviated review of previous targets and collect input on target setting and recommendations on improvement strategies.

Prior to participating in the forum on August 18, we encourage contributors to review pertinent background materials at the following site: The BSE invites those unable to attend the stakeholder input forums to submit online input using specially designed forms that will also be available on this site. The last date to submit online input is August 31, 2021.
