Professional Development Resources:

SPP Indicator 13 (Secondary Transition) WebEx trainings were conducted by the Division of Learning Services (DLS) on September 9, 2010, and on September 28, 2010. Participants are reminded of the specific regulatory requirements for Indicator 13, and learn how to develop Individual Education Programs (IEPs) that include the required transition content for each youth. Since the training includes opportunities for participants to practice reviewing the file of a student (age sixteen (16) or older) for compliance with Indicator 13, participants are to have a student file available to review.
