What is the state performance plan state
What is the “State Performance Plan?” (State)

  • The State Performance Plan (SPP) is a plan created by New York State in response to Federal (US) Government mandates included in the latest IDEA (2004) reauthorization regarding special education state performance measurement and accountability.

  • The State Performance Plan addresses data collection for 20 performance Indicators. These 20 Indicators are measured in every state

Overview of the sample iep
Overview of the Sample IEP

  • KEY Points

    • Start Transition IEP with Level I Vocational Assessment (Student, Parent, and Staff)

    • Begin writing Transition IEP with the

      PLEP and then page 10

    • Thread Level I Vocational Assessment and page 10 of the IEP through out the whole IEP document

    • Address transition goals on each page of the IEP

    • Display good faith in writing the proposed outcomes

    • Fill in all requested information, do not leave blanks

The Transition IEP process starts with a

Level Vocational Assessment

(NYC DOE SOPM, Pg. 220)

Level i vocational assessment
LEVEL I Vocational Assessment

All students classified with a disability who reach age

12.0 as of September 1 of a given year will receive a

Level 1 Career Assessment. First time students to

special education over the age of 12 will also have a

Level 1 performed regardless of their age. It should

be updated yearly.

The Level I Assessment includes:

  • Student Interview

  • Parent/Guardian Interview

  • Teacher Assessment

Level i vocational assessment process
Level I Vocational Assessment Process

  • This process is a team effort. The career assessment team should include (but not be limited to):

    • the teacher

    • the student

    • the student’s family (a guardian, or someone who can advocate on the student’s behalf)

    • professionals who have regular contact with the student.

Present level of performance requirements
Present Level of PerformanceRequirements

  • The IEP recommendation must report the student’s present levels of performance and indicate the individual needs according to each of the four areas:

    • Academic/ educational achievement and learning characteristics,

    • social development,

    • physical development, and

    • management needs.

  • The report of the student’s present levels of performance and individual needs in the above areas must include:

    • how the disability affects involvement and progress in the general curriculum (i.e., the same curriculum as for non-disabled students), or for preschool students, as appropriate, how the disability affects participation in age appropriate activities;

    • for students age 14 (an updated annually), a statement of the transition service needs that focuses on the student’s courses of study; and

    • for students age 15 (and at a younger age, if determined appropriate) a statement of the student’s needs, taking into account the student’s preferences and interests, as they relate to transition from school to post-school activities.
