Effective as of 2005, the federal government began monitoring transition plans for students with disabilities.  These transition plans were not only from Part C to Part B, but Secondary/Post-school transition as well.  The intention of this monitoring is to create effective post-secondary school results for students with disabilities and improve supports needed to ensure their success while they are in the secondary educational setting.

During the first few years of this monitoring, the federal governments’ intention is to establish a baseline for transition by collection of data.  The results of this data collection and analysis will be used by both the federal government as well as state governments to assist LEAs in providing the best educational services possible to students with disabilities.

Data collection and analysis will transpire in three different forms:
  1. State Performance Plan (SPP)- Indicators 1, 2, 13 and 14
  2. Annual Performance Report (APR)
  3. Continuous Improvement Focused Monitoring Process (CIFMP)
Performance Indicators:

Indicator 1: Percent of youth with IEPs graduating from high school with a regular diploma compared to percent of all youth in the State graduating with a regular diploma.
Indicator 2: Percent of youths with IEPs dropping out of high school compared to the percent of all youth in the State dropping out of high school.
Indicator 13: Percent of youth aged 16 and above with an IEP that includes coordinated, measurable, annual IEP goals and transition services that will reasonably enable the student to meet the postsecondary goals.
Indicator 14:Percent of youth who had IEPs, are no longer in secondary school who have been competitively employed, enrolled in some type of postsecondary school, both within one year of leaving high school.

Indicator 14 consists of four performance indicators.  The purpose of these is to increase is to increase post-school performance of special education students in the areas of:
  • Postsecondary education
  • Employment
  • Independent living
  • Agency linkages
