The IDC Interactive Institutes 2018 - Building a Culture of High-Quality Part B Data will support states in improving the quality and use of IDEA 618 and 616 data at the state and local levels. Data collection, analysis, reporting, use, and State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) evaluation will be the primary content highlighted.

The Interactive Institutes will present opportunities for state teams to actively engage with each other and TA providers through interactive peer-to-peer formats. Participants will share and learn through engaging sessions that highlight processes, practices, and tools designed to achieve and maintain the high-quality Part B IDEA data that serve as a foundation for improving results for children and youth with disabilities.
