Indicator 13 is the percent of youth aged 16 and above with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that includes appropriate measurable postsecondary goals that are annually updated and based upon an age appropriate transition assessment, transition services, including courses of study, that will reasonably enable the student to meet those postsecondary goals, and annual IEP goals related to the student’s transition services needs.
There also must be evidence that the student was invited to the IEP Team meeting where transition services are to be discussed and evidence that, if appropriate, a representative of any participating agency was invited to the IEP Team meeting with the prior consent of the parent or student who has reached the age of majority.
Data for Indicator 13 must be entered by a Data Entry Agent or LEA certifier into the web based SPP 13 application by accessing TEASE
The District Certifier is responsible for ensuring that the data are accurate and therefore, must be knowledgeable of the process. The district data entry agent and district certifier will enter district data collectively when necessary. Once entered and complete, the district certifier will certify the data. Every district must have a complete and certified status regardless of whether the district has data to enter.
