Post-School Outcomes Data Collection and Use: Questions State Directors of Special Education Should Ask
Reder, Nancy
National Post-School Outcomes Center
The purpose of this document is to give state directors of special education, especially those who are new in their positions, a guide to understanding their role and responsibilities with respect to the collection, analysis and reporting of post-school outcomes data for Indicator 14 of the Part B State Performance Plan (SPP). To assist state directors, the National Post-School Outcomes Center, a technical assistance center funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), has developed this set of questions designed to help state directors understand the formative issues that will enable them to collect quality data and improve post-school outcomes for youth with disabilities. As you read through this document, it is important to understand the interrelationships between Indicator 14 and the other indicators that are designed to help states mark progress on improving educational outcomes for students with disabilities. Ultimately, everything that happens during the course of a student's elementary and secondary education will impact how well the student does once he or she leaves school. Thus, in order for state education agencies (SEAs) and local education agencies (LEAs) to show success in reaching their targets for Indicator 14, they will be achieving success with other Indicators in the SPP.
