Stakeholder Knowledge: The State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP)

Stakeholder toolkit icon

The State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) is part of the State Performance Plan (SPP)/Annual Performance Report (APR) and a requirement for all states and territories receiving federal funds for IDEA programs. It is a multi-year plan intended to increase the capacity of local early intervention programs (under Part C) and school districts (under Part B) to improve outcomes for children with disabilities and their families. Stakeholders, such as State Interagency Coordinating Council (SICC) and State Advisory Panel (SAP) representatives, are required to be involved in all aspects of the SSIP.

In this section, you will learn about:

  • the intent of the SSIP and an overview of its requirements;
  • where to find your state’s SSIP and what you can learn from it; and
  • considerations for being involved in and supporting your state’s SSIP process.
