Monitoring Transition from Part C

Annual Performance Report Data for Transition Indicators

The U.S. Department of Education's WWW: Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is responsible for ensuring state compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA). To assist states in meeting the needs of children with disabilities, OSEP requires each state to complete a WWW: State Performance Plan and Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) for Part C and Part B service systems.

From 2006 through 2012 NECTAC contributed to the analyses of both the Part C and Part B APRs, including analyses of state reported performance on the two APR indicators pertinent to early childhood transition. Starting in 2013, the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA) continued with this task.

Indicator C8

Percent of all children exiting Part C who received timely transition planning to support the child's transition to preschool and other appropriate community services by their third birthday including:

SPP/APR Analyses Reports for Indicator C8
