8 Student Invitation Documentation Various Ways o In Student s File Meets Requirements Note in file stating teacher invited student prior to IEP Or if student is 18 receipt of 10 day notice prior to IEP o In Student s File Meets and Exceeds Requirements Signed, written student invitation dated prior to IEP KSDE (2011). Changes to Instructions for Reporting on State Performance Plan, Indicator 13: Secondary Transition, Retrieved on June 27, 2011 from

9 Moving smoothly from requirements to effective strategies Student involvement in the IEP process o Student s strengths, interests, preferences and needs drive the plan o Involving the student and his/her family in the planning drives his/her future!

10 Invite Representative of Outside Agency When outside agencies may provide or pay for services Obtain parental consent to invite Formally invite a representative Document the invitation 10 day notice form Note in file stating invitation. If an agency fails to provide transition services planned in the IEP, reconvene the IEP team to identify alternative strategies. Districts are ultimately responsible for ensuring that needs are met. (KSDE, 2009);

11 Who should participate in transition planning & IEPS? WHY? Family Members Student Education personnel School support staff Administrators Peers and friends Community members Postsecondary Ed. staff Community Service Agency Providers Who else might be included?

12 Age-Appropriate Transition Assessments Prior to IEP meeting, conduct an age-appropriate transition assessment related to training/ education, employment, and, where appropriate, independent living skills. The assessment will assist in : Developing the measurable postsecondary goals Informing the PLAAFPs Identifying transition services Transition assessment should be on-going.

13 Defining Transition Assessment Assist the student and family to determine needs, strengths, preferences & interests related to life after high school. Conduct career awareness and exploration activities Conduct a variety of formal and informal assessments (KSDE, 2009)

14 Effective Transition Assessment Strategies Why it should be more than one? Why it should be ongoing? How to be comprehensive?

15 Defining Transition Assessment Explore general education assessment opportunities o Personal Plans of Study o Kansas Career Pipeline Integrate ongoing processes into the transition planning for the student Transition Assessments inform the IEP s PLAAFPs (KSDE, 2009)

16 Formal Assessments Examples Achievement tests Intellectual functioning assessment Adaptive behavior scales Aptitude tests Personal/Social inventories Self-determination scales Pre-voc/employability scales Interest Inventories 16

17 Informal Assessments Examples Interest inventories Situational assessments Interviews Direct observation Case file reviews Curriculum-based assessments Social histories Rating scales for specific areas 17

18 Appropriate Measurable Postsecondary Goals Must be: Based on age-appropriate transition assessments. Must have a goal for: education/training employment Independent living goal is only if appropriate How does this lead to positive postschool outcomes?

19 Measurable Postsecondary Goals Measurable postsecondary goals are outcomes that occur after the student has left high school. They identify what a student will do.

20 What do measurable postsecondary goals mean? Here is a HELPFUL Formula for how to write these: Formula: After, (High School, Graduation) will (student). (what, where, and how???
