Special Education Services
Indicator 14 Tools and Resources
The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and Indicator 14 of the Illinois State Performance Plan (SPP), Part B for 2005-2010, require the state to collect post secondary outcomes data on students with disabilities one year after leaving school (i.e. students who graduate, dropout, or age out). The Post School Survey, developed by the National Post School Outcomes Center, assesses the outcomes of individuals with disabilities one year after they have exited high school. The Illinois Post School Survey is a web-based survey process that provides a framework for local districts to collect and analyze the outcomes of former students, and to identify areas of strength and weakness in preparing students for adult life. Former students are contacted for a brief interview to assess the areas of independent living, participation in postsecondary education, and employment.
A web application has been developed which Sites will use to report survey results, using the login and password provided by Harrisburg Project. The web application can be accessed at https://www.hbug.k12.il.us/SPPDC/. The web application training demo can be accessed at http://www.hbug.k12.il.us/SPPDC/help/SPP 14 Data Collection New.swf
