 Disproportionality


The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is required by the reauthorized Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to make determinations for disproportionality and provide for a review of the policies, procedures and practices to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Act. The State provides this review of policies, procedures and practices by administering a Self-Assessment Monitoring Protocol to targeted districts. Disproportionality is a comprehensive construct that requires determinations for several different categories: 1) Significant Disproportionality, 2) Disproportionate Representation, and 3) Significant Discrepancy. This webpage will provide additional information about the different disproportionality determinations and resources to improve disproportionate practices in local districts.
