PI 11.02 Definitions. In this chapter:
Wisconsin has a strong and longstanding commitment to providing equitable education for all pupils. When the Wisconsin Constitution was adopted in 1848, it called for tuition free schools open to all pupils of all races and religious beliefs. In 1949, it became illegal for a school board to exclude any pupil from public school based on religion, nationality, color, or race or to maintain separate schools to achieve exclusion. This act, created in 1949, was Wisconsin's initial pupil nondiscrimination law.
Funds under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) are provided to school districts on an entitlement basis for programs and services to children with disabilities. Funds may be used for staffing, educational materials, equipment, and other costs to provide special education and related services, as well as supplementary aids and services, to children with disabilities.
This IDEA discretionary grant collects post high school outcomes data on students with disabilities who successfully exit high school or age out at 21 through the use of a survey which includes questions about independent living, post secondary education, and employment.
To date, no parallel data has been collected for exiting students without disabilities. Therefore, no comparative data are available for non-disabled peers in the areas of independent living, post secondary education and employment.
