This page describes indicator 14 of the State Performance Plan required by IDEA 2004 and lists strategies for improvement and resources.

Indicator 14 of the State Performance Plan required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 is the percent of youth who are no longer in secondary school, had IEPs in effect at the time they left school, and were:
A) enrolled in higher education within one year of leaving high school,
B) enrolled in higher education or competively employed within one year of leaving high school, 
C) enrolled in higher education or in some other postsecondary education or training program, or competitively employed or in some other employment within one year of leaving high school.


Strategies for Improving Indicator 14

Data

  • Access Florida Education Training and Placement Information Program (FETPIP) data and ensure accuracy.
  • Review and analyze multiple years of FETPIP data to determine whether an area is consistently problematic (e.g., employment rate, postsecondary education rate, both).
  • Determine if there are trends among groups (e.g., exceptionality, gender, and race) from FETPIP data.
  • Disseminate data related to Indicator 14 to all relevant stakeholders (e.g., administrators, teachers). 

Policies, Procedures and Practices

  • Review district and school policies and procedures to determine if existing policies or procedures may be impacting postsecondary outcomes (e.g., no paid employment programs while students are in school).
  • Review inter-institutional agreements and interagency agreements to determine if provisions need to be changed or added to improve postsecondary outcomes.
  • Identify and implement evidence-based practices that are known to impact employment and/or postsecondary education outcomes (e.g., non-paid and paid work experience, self-determination instruction).

Training, Professional Development, and Technical Assistance

  • Identify areas of need and develop a schedule of professional development activities designed to impact postsecondary outcomes (e.g., training in supported employment, training in self-determination, participation in PDA-ESE Transition or Interpersonal Interactions and Participation Modules).
  • Solicit training and/or technical assistance from Project 10: Transition Education Network, other Bureau discretionary projects, and/or the Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services to improve outcomes.
