General Information - SPP Indicator 13

State Performance Plan (SPP) Indicator 13 measures the percent of youth 16 years old and above with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that includes:

  • appropriate measurable postsecondary goals that are annually updated and based upon an age appropriate transition assessment;
  • 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.  

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 was invited to the IEP Team meeting with the prior consent of the parent or student who has reached the age of majority.​

Data Collection 

The data collection period is July 1 to June 30 of each year.  Indicator 13 refers to students with disabilities who are at least 16 year old between July 1 and June 30 of the collection period, and students up through age 21 (age 22 if appropriate). This indicator requires a sampling procedure. This sample includes students who are age 15 but will turn age 16 by June 30 of the collection period.

Data Source and Collection Schedule 

All applicable districts are required to report data into the SPP 13 application. Access it by logging in through TEAL.  

The District Certifier is responsible for ensuring that the data are accurate and therefore, must be knowledgeable of the process.
