Abstract: 

States must set targets for each of the Early Childhood Outcome Indicators, C3 and B7, once their baseline is established in the SPP/APR due 2010. OSEP received comments from states suggesting that three sets of five targets (each set totaling 100%) is excessive, and that OSEP should reduce the number of targets for the SPP/APR indicators. The purpose of this paper is to provide background as to the work that has been done to date regarding this issue, as well as summarize possible options for setting targets for OSEP reporting and making recommendations.
