State Performance Plan (SPP) Indicator 14
This indicator focuses on the post-school results for students with disabilities.
"Percent of youth who are no longer in secondary school had IEPs in effect at the time they left school, and were:
- Enrolled in higher education within one year of leaving high school.
- Enrolled in higher education or competitively employed within one year of leaving high school
- Enrolled in higher education, or in some other post-secondary education or training program, or competitively employed in some other employment within one year of leaving high school.“
The SPP Indicator 14: Post-School Outcome Survey is a statewide survey that is administered each summer by NuStats. Sponsored by the Texas Education Agency, and facilitated by Sam Houston State University, the purpose of the survey is to follow-up with persons previously enrolled in high schools (who had an Individualized Education Program (IEP) at the time of exiting high school). Data is collected on the former students’ post-high school activities. Eligible respondents either graduated or dropped out the previous school year. The survey includes a total of 12 questions; 11 questions needed for the State Performance Plan (SPP) Indicator 14 reporting and one question to address statewide and district high school program improvement.
