8 Step by Step Guidance Part A: Team and Sample Selection Part B: Review IEP’s Part C: Tally and Summarize Results Part D: Develop Corrective Plan (if compliance is under 90%)

9 1/6 of Districts Contribute to the State Transition Data Annually in Rotation School districts with more than 30 students with disabilities aged will review a random selection of a minimum of 30 IEPs. You need to keep documentation for this entire process for 7 years. Part A: Team and Sample Selection

10 Part B: Review IEP’s School District Self-Review Monitoring Protocol This form serves as a summarizing form and planning worksheet. Individual Student Record Review Form For each IEP the district reviews you will complete one of these forms. Secondary Transition IEP Self-Review Monitoring Report This is a sample of the web based form you will use to report the results of your review to SED

12 NYS Citation Regulatory wordingWhere to find evidence in the IEP. comments Y/N 8 NYCRR §200.4 (d) (4)(i)(c) When the CSE met to consider transition service needs, the school district invited the student. If the student did not attend, the district ensured that the student's preferences and interests were considered. If the student attended or did not attend the Annual Review, the following need to be present Statements in the PLP’s/MAPS that are clearly attributed to the student as being the source of the information. The Measurable Post Secondary Goals are personal and the result of communication with the student. Statements generated from drop down menus don’t meet that standard. Student listed as attendee at CSE meeting is good but not enough proof of “ownership”. Information in the Comments section may be attributable to the student. Student Participation

13 Example PLP In completing the Level I assessment, Steve identified himself as a talented writer. Steve displays strong analysis and synthesis skills during the writing process. These skills will serve Steve well in any post-secondary setting and assist him in pursuing a career in Communications or history.

14 Unacceptable Example Steve enjoys baseball and is on the varsity team. (“Steve stated…”) Teachers report that Steve is an engaging participant to have in class and talented writer and would do well in a job involving communication. (not inappropriate to say, but does not prove that the student’s input was considered)
