Purpose: The subsequent “Examples and Nonexamples” are intended as a training resource for state and district personnel responsible for (a) collecting data for the Part B Annual Performance Report Indicator 13 and (b) improving performance of districts on Indicator 13. The document is also intended as a resource for practitioners as they develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). The examples are intended to guide personnel in developing IEPs that adequately meet the requirements of 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 child to meet the postsecondary goals” [20 U. S. C. 1416 (a)(3)(B)]. The nonexamples are intended to illustrate components of the IEP that do not meet the minimum requirements of this Indicator.

Background: The document has been developed primarily by NSTTAC staff and is based on the requirements of IDEA 2004 and its 2006 regulations, as well as knowledge of accepted best practice. The document reflects questions and input on Indicator 13 from practitioners and other TA providers in the area of secondary transition, including members of NSTTAC’s expert panels and advisory board, as well as state and local secondary transition service providers through informal feedback (e.g., after presentations on Indicator 13).

This document was approved by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) on August 13, 2007.

Using this resource: The document walks through the 6 items of the Indicator 13 Checklist for 12 different students (ages 14 – 21). The numbered items are relevant to the document’s formatting and may be useful when using printed copies of the full document but have no other meaning. NSTTAC staff have also developed “case study” descriptions of each of the 12 students regarding their gender, age, educational experiences, category for receiving services under IDEA, and other relevant information. These are available through a direct link, Case Studies, on the NSTTAC website.
