Changes in B13 = Changes to Transition IEP Practice New leadership at the MI Transition Projects – Dr. June Gothberg, background NSTTAC at Western MI University MI has had the same checklist for 4 years-updates needed (required only 1 measurable postsecondary goal) Compliance with IDEA requirement for measurable postsecondary goal for each – education – training – employment – independent living as appropriate
Changes in B13 = Changes to Transition IEP Practice 2015 B13 Secondary Transition checklist will require measurable postsecondary goal for each area – education, training, employment, and independent living as appropriate 2015 MI B13 Checklist is not approved yet but it will align with NSTTAC version B – CIMS- NO longer able correct non-compliant & enter only compliant data (MI practice for 4 years)
Biggest Change in Transition Practice Postsecondary Goals Postsecondary Goals are: The ‘Vision’ Post-school Outcome based Based on transition assessment & transition planning School team & student/ family work together to identify, clarify, refine
Postsecondary Goals are the Vision Not a Guaranteed Outcome District obligation is to support the development & steps toward the Postsecondary Goals (Vision) for Education Training Employment Independent Living (as appropriate) Through… – Transition Assessment(s) – Transition Services – Course(s) of Study – Annual Goals
Postsecondary Goals Measurable = Countable Identifies an outcome, not a process One goal for each adult outcome area Adult Outcome Areas Education or Training (required) Employment (required) Independent Living (when appropriate) 13

What experiences must the student participate in this academic year that are necessary for achieving the identified post-secondary goals? What services and specific instruction are essential this year for the student to develop skills and knowledge to attain their post-secondary goals? Do we know enough about this student’s vocational skills to identify an appropriate post- secondary employment goal or design activities to support the identified goal? Transition Service Questions
