Helping your students' transition planning process

Students with disabilities and their families often wonder about life after graduation and what supports will be available when school services end. The transition planning process is designed to answer these questions. In Texas, transition must be addressed in the IEP by a student’s 14th birthday (TEC §29.0111).

Our transition planning specialists work with your schools to ensure that all of your students with disabilities have access to the best possible transition planning that also meets legal requirements. We offer support, professional development, resources, products, and updates related to the transition planning process.

SPPI 13 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

SPP 14

SPP Indicator 14 is related to Post-School Outcomes and measures the “percent of youth who had IEPs, are no longer in secondary school and who have been competitively employed, enrolled in some type of post-secondary school, or both, within one year of leaving high school.”

Frequently Asked Questions about SPP14

What are postschool outcome data?
Postschool outcome (PSO) data provide a picture of life after high school for former special education students in relation to post-secondary education and employment. Positive post-school outcomes involve some level of “engagement” after high school, meaning that former students are continuing their education or have secured employment. PSO data are collected not only for state and federal reporting but for continuous programmatic improvement.
 
How can PSO data inform practice?
School staff and other stakeholders use PSO data to inform practice around transition services including instruction, development of transition plans, activities, and agency collaboration. The goal is to increase engagement outcomes and decrease non-engagement.
PSO data are also tied to the Local Education Agency (LEA) Application for Federal Funds for Special Education. School districts must develop a plan to maintain or improve PSO in their application.
 
How are PSO data collected?
To gather PSO data, a vendor on behalf of TEA conducts a survey each year, reaching out to former students one year after they exited high school. SCTN offers technical support to school districts as they conduct the Post-School Outcomes Survey, and provides state and district-level data reports after the survey closes.
