1 TRANSITION LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE TRIANGULATING ANNUAL GOALS WITH POSTSECONDARY GOALS, STATE STANDARDS & INDUSTRY SKILL COMPETENCIES

2 POSTSECONDARY GOALS Otherwise knows as Post School Outcomes Otherwise knows as Post School Outcomes Must be “Measurable”= Outcome & Observable Must be “Measurable”= Outcome & Observable Student focused/Assessment Directed Student focused/Assessment Directed Months after HS Graduation Months after HS Graduation Clear goal for the “Next Step” Clear goal for the “Next Step”

3 HOW EXPLICIT SHOULD THEY LINK? Why leave it to chance? Why leave it to chance? Why leave it open to different interpretation Why leave it open to different interpretation Why not make linkages to increase relevance Why not make linkages to increase relevance Why not focus annual goals to be necessary skills to achieve at the next level…why else are we doing it? Why not focus annual goals to be necessary skills to achieve at the next level…why else are we doing it?

4 DO ALL ANNUAL GOALS NEED TO LINK? At least one annual goal (and/or objective) should link directly to the PSGs—clear unmistakable connection At least one annual goal (and/or objective) should link directly to the PSGs—clear unmistakable connection What annual goal/skill would you be working on that shouldn’t link to the PSGs? What annual goal/skill would you be working on that shouldn’t link to the PSGs? If it doesn’t…how important is it? If it doesn’t…how important is it?

5 ANNUAL IEP GOAL Skills needed for improvement Skills needed for improvement Skills needed to reach PSGs! Skills needed to reach PSGs! Must link to PSG (at least one…why not all?) Must link to PSG (at least one…why not all?) How explicitly should they link?...why leave it open to interpretations? How explicitly should they link?...why leave it open to interpretations? How do we know the Industry Standards? How do we know the Industry Standards?

6 STATE CONTENT STANDARDS STATE CONTENT STANDARDS Provides appropriate grade level academic skill targets Provides appropriate grade level academic skill targets Ensure alignment with general education curriculum Ensure alignment with general education curriculum Provide academic road map to graduation Provide academic road map to graduation

7 INDUSTRY STANDARDS (COMPETENCY SKILLS) Identify skills required/useful for chooses field of work/profession Identify skills required/useful for chooses field of work/profession Assures students are working on the “right” skills Assures students are working on the “right” skills Aligns course of study to Postsecondary goals Aligns course of study to Postsecondary goals Provides clear context for Transition Focused Assessment Provides clear context for Transition Focused Assessment

8 HOW DO THESE THINGS TRIANGULATE YOUR ANNUAL GOALS Postsecondary Goals State Content Standards Industry Standards Competency Skills

9 HOW TO BEGIN Clearly Identify Postsecondary Goal— Employment & Education Clearly Identify Postsecondary Goal— Employment & Education Examine skills needed for PSGs using O*NET Examine skills needed for PSGs using O*NET Examine academic areas of need— translate to state content standards Examine academic areas of need— translate to state content standards Find “Common Ground” between the two Find “Common Ground” between the two

18 GUIDED PRACTICE 1. Choose a Postsecondary Goal (O*NET) handouts—think of a familiar student 2. Examine the skills identified for the Career 3. Examine common skills associated with Content Standards/Key Components/Access Skills 4. Write the PSG & 2 Annual Goals

19 FINAL EVALUATION Thinking Backwards—(NOT Backwards Thinking) Thinking Backwards—(NOT Backwards Thinking) Ask yourselves this: “If I read the annual goals in isolation of the Postsecondary goals (outcomes), can I identify what the PSG is…without reading it?” If Yes, Celebrate…If No, Try again

20 NEXT STEPS Identify Special Education/Transition Services to be provided to ensure Annual Goals can be met Identify Special Education/Transition Services to be provided to ensure Annual Goals can be met Identify adult agency connections that may need to occur—including internships and employers Identify adult agency connections that may need to occur—including internships and employers Identify a meaningful and Accurate course of study for the goals Identify a meaningful and Accurate course of study for the goals
