1 Using and Understanding Post School Outcome Data Collection Presented by Kentucky Post School Outcome Center (KyPSO) Beth Miller Harrison, Ph.D. Tony LoBianco, Ph.D. Judy Johns Winter/Spring 2011

2 Expected Webinar Outcomes Directors of Special Education and other school administrators will: 1.Understand reasons for collecting post-school outcome data 2.Understand data collection process 3.Understand how to interpret Indicator 14 (post-school outcome data) Kentucky Continuous Improvement Monitoring (KCMP) Report 4.Understand how to use Indicator 14 data for school improvement

3 What is Indicator 14? Indicator 14: 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 competitively 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.

4 Collecting this data will help us answer questions like: For students who are successful, did school help and how? For students who aren’t successful, what could the school have done differently/better? What kinds of supports do young adults need most after high school? What changes are needed to better support students, families, schools, agencies?

5 What Data are Collected? 1.Data about student transition planning experience and post school plans during the final year of high school. 2.Data about the post-school outcomes of Former Students (FS) one year after secondary school exit. When are Data Collected? From April 1 st to June 30 th of each year.

6 How are data collected? Data about the transition planning process and post-school plans are collected using the Kentucky In School Transition Survey (KISTS) which consists of 1). Student contact information after high school, 2). A review of the student record (Record Review), and 3). A survey completed by the exiting student (Student Survey). Data about post-school outcomes of former students (FS) are collected using the Youth One Year Out (YOYO) former student interview. The YOYO is a computer assisted, telephone interview. 6

7 How are Data Collected? Both the KISTS and the YOYO are web- based instruments

8 Roles in Data Collection State Education Agency (SEA) ~ responsible for assuring data collection; developing and submitting State Performance Plan (SPP) and Annual Performance Report (APR) to Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). This contains state targets and improvement activities for all Indicators, including Indicator 14.

9 Roles in Data Collection Local Education Agencies (LEA) ~ responsible for collecting the data including identifying who, at the local level, will collect the data; review of Indicator 14 data via the KCMP; development of district improvement planned based upon data review.

10 Roles in Data Collection Special Education Cooperatives ~ assist/participate with districts in data review and in development of improvement activities and root cause analysis.

11 Roles in Data Collection Kentucky Post School Outcome Center ~ responsible for secondary data analysis; development of LEA, Cooperative, and State level reports regarding the data; provision of technical assistance and/or training of LEA, SEA, and Cooperative level staff in regard to data collection, data interpretation, and data use.

12 Old Indicator #14 (2005 – 2008) Percent of youth, who had IEPs, are no longer in secondary school and were: New Indicator #14 (as of Feb 2009) Percent of youth who are no longer in secondary school, had IEPs in effect at the time they left school, and were: Another Way of Thinking About New Indicator #14 · Enrolled in some type of postsecondary school, within one year of leaving high school, but not employed. · Competitively employed, within one year of leaving high school, but not enrolled in post- secondary education. · Both employed and enrolled in postsecondary school within one year of leaving high school. A. Enrolled in higher education within one year of leaving high school. A. The percentage of former students with IEPs that exited the previous year and are enrolled in two or four year college/university. B. Enrolled in higher education or competitively employed within one year of leaving high school. B. Part A plus the percentage of former students with IEPs that exited the previous year and are, or have been, competitively employed since exit. C. Enrolled in higher education or in some other postsecondary education or training; or competitively employed or in some other employment within one year of leaving high school. C. Part B plus the percentage of former students with IEPs that exited the previous year and are, or have been, enrolled in another post-secondary training program and/or employed non- competitively.

13 Indicator 14 is Considered a “New” Indicator Because Indicator 14 was redefined, it is considered a new indicator. Therefore, no state targets were set for Indicator 14 for the reporting year. This years’ ( ) YOYO data, both at the state and local levels, are considered baseline data. The Kentucky Department of Education/Division of Learning Services (KDE/DLS) is currently setting state targets for all indicators through the Annual Performance Report (APR).
