SPP Indicator 13: A compliance indicator that measures the percentage 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. 

Goal
The goal of Indicator 13 is a strong transition plan that addresses all required components and enables the student to experience postsecondary success. 

Measurement

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 that is likely to be responsible for providing or paying for transition services, including, if appropriate, pre-employment transition services, was invited to the IEP team meeting with the prior consent of the parent or student who has reached the age of majority) divided by the (# of youth with an IEP age 16 and above)] times 100.

  • Illinois State Performance Plan (SPP) Indicator 13 - ISBE Scoring RubricPDF Document
    The ISBE Scoring Rubric has been revised to assist districts in collecting data to assist in meeting Indicator 13 of the Part B State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report, as required by the Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs. ISBE has adapted the rubric from the NSTTAC Indicator 13 checklist prepared by the national Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center (NSTTAC), September 13, 2006.
  • Recommended Consent Froms for Agency Invitation to IEP Meetings
    IDEA 2004 requires school districts “to the extent appropriate, with the consent of the parents or a child who has reached the age of majority...the public agency must invite a representative of any participating agency that is likely to be responsible for providing or paying for transition services.” [34CFR §300.321(b)(3)].
    In order to support school districts in implementing this requirement, a sample consent form for parents and for students who have reached the age of majority have been developed and are recommended for district use. In concert with the requirement of annual IEP review and update, parent or student consent for the invitation of outside agencies to the IEP meeting should be obtained annually.
