SPP Indicator 13: A compliance indicator that measures the percent of youth with IEPs aged 16 and above with an IEP that includes appropriate measurable postsecondary goals that are annually updated and based upon age appropriate transition assessments, 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 service needs.
Percentage = # of youth with an IEP that meets the above definition / # of youth with an IEP age 16 and above.
The goal of Indicator 13 is for youth with IEPs to have an appropriate and compliant transition plan that reasonably enables him/her to meet postsecondary goals and annual IEP goals related to his/her transition service needs.
The ISBE data source is I-Star, state data source (IEP Student Tracking and Reporting) system under Student Approvals.
The calculation is made at the district and state level. The district completes the Illinois Indicator 13 Checklist for each student. For all questions, a YES answer indicates that the requirement is complete in the student’s transition plan. A NO answer indicates that the requirement is missing from the student’s transition plan, but should be included, as the question is applicable for this particular student. The IEP will be considered as having met the requirements of Indicator 13 if:
- Items 1a through 8r are all answered yes
- Items 1a through 7q, 8s and 8t are answered yes and 8r is answered no
