  6. SPP 13: Tips not Tricks

    Join us for a virtual workshop on tips for a successful SPP 13 submission.  

    Indicator 13 is the percent of youth aged 16 and above with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that includes appropriate measurable post-secondary goals that are annually updated and based upon multiple pieces of data including an age appropriate transition assessment, transition services, and courses of study, that will reasonably enable the student to meet those post-secondary goals, as well as annual IEP goals related to the student’s transition services needs. Further, there must be evidence that the student was invited to the IEP Team meeting where transition services are to be discussed and evidence that, if appropriate, a representative of any participating agency was invited to the IEP Team meeting with the prior consent of the parent or student who has reached the age of majority.
    Data collection 
    Data for Indicator 13 must be entered by a Data Entry Agent or LEA Certifier into the web-based SPP 13 application by accessing the Texas Education Agency Login (TEAL). The District Certifier is responsible for ensuring that the data are accurate and therefore, must be knowledgeable of the process. The district data entry agent and district certifier will enter district data collectively when necessary. Once entered and complete, the district certifier will certify the data. The TEAL application for Indicator 13 will open April 1, 2020. Every district which meets the data collection criteria must complete and certified status by August 14, 2020, regardless of whether the district has student data to enter.

  7. 2020 21 Webinar 9 : Doin’ the three-step: Intentionally moving language forward through augmentative communication: Make a Decision on the personal system
    Decisions begin by asking good questions. The key question related to determining a personal AAC system is: What is the goal for language using a personal augmentative communication system? Additional questions include: What is the current communication? Who needs to be involved? What needs to be evaluated? How will the evaluation be conducted? Where will the AAC system be supported? Asking valuable questions and analyzing the answers will result in plans that are focused on developing language, in ways that language is developed.
