Equity Requirements in IDEA

IDEA has three distinct requirements around equity: Disproportionate Representation (SPP/APR Indicators 9 and 10), Significant Discrepancy (SPP/APR Indicators 4A and 4B), and Significant Disproportionality. To help clarify the differences and similarities among the three equity requirements, IDC developed this resource to compare and contrast these various equity requirements. The resource details key areas such as methodology, data sources, and reporting considerations for each of the three equity requirements.
