Our Mission is to help state education agencies establish practical and rigorous data collection systems that will measure and profile the post-school experiences of youth with disabilities (i.e., Indicator 14). The results of collecting Indicator 14 data will be used for national, state, and local reporting and, most importantly, to guide and improve transition services to this population.

Just Released!!!

On December 11, 2014, OSEP released a Dear Colleague Letter on the educational needs of students with disabilities who are in correctional facilities  and the requirements of Part B of the IDEA as they apply to States, State educational agencies (SEAs), and public agencies (including local educational agencies (LEAs), and responsible noneducational public agencies) in educating these students.

Recently Revised The Part B Tree of Influence

Developed in collaboration with the Western Regional Resource Center, this product is intended to assist states with mapping how they would use the SPP Indicators for state improvement. This Tree of Influence serves as one model to show possible logical relationships among the indicators and (a) the resources that states invest, (b) the activities that take place, and (c) the benefits or changes that result. (Revised May 2014)

Indicator 14 provides one opportunity for States and Districts to determine if youth with disabilities are positively engaged (i.e., enrolled in postsecondary education/ training or employed) once they leave high school.”
