Paperwork in Special Education: Survey Findings

  1. $0.00

This brief policy analysis presents findings from a survey of states on current observations in areas related to the perceived burden of paperwork (i.e., all aspects of recording and reporting, time involved to meet requirements at state and local levels regardless of medium used) on special education. The paperwork issues most frequently cited were the data collection required by the state performance plan (SPP) process and the perceived continuation of duplicative requests for information from different offices of the Department of Education. Suggestions for reducing the impact of these issues included:

  • providing additional resources to support training for LEAs in all areas of reporting;
  • establishing a clear, concise notification process for all state agencies about their responsibility for maintenance of effort; and
  • ensuring better alignment of reporting between OSEP and OESE.

Some states identified advances in technology as having reduced the amount of paperwork, and some cited negative results of these advances such as subsequent reduction in staffing levels and increases in the number of requests for information.
