Postsecondary Transition Planning
Indicator 13: Percent of youth with IEPs aged 16 and above with an IEP that includes appropriate measurable postsecondary goals that are annually updated and based upon an age appropriate transition assessment, transition services, including courses of study, that will reasonably enable the student to meet those postsecondary goals, and annual IEP goals related to the student's transition services needs. There also 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.
For current information regarding this indicator please review the APR.
IEP: Postsecondary Transition Plan (PTP)
With stakeholder input, the Department of Public Instruction has developed a web-based IEP: Postsecondary Transition Plan (PTP) that will assist local educational agencies to document the postsecondary transition requirements with 100% compliance while allowing for individualization to meet student needs. The PTP is the application for collecting Indicator 13 data. Because state law requires transition plans for students with disabilities aged 14 and above, the PTP is used to develop and monitor transition plans for all students with disabilities who need a postsecondary transition plan
Web Access Management System (WAMS) - How to get a WAMS ID
Use this site to create a WAMS User ID. This is needed to access PTP. Creating a WAMS User ID is a one-time activity.
|Application Security Manager (ASM) – Used for granting/revoking PTP access.
The District Security Administrator (DSA) is responsible for managing access to ASM in the district by assigning PTP Application Administrators. PTP Application Administrators assign authorized users to the PTP Application. (See step-by-step directions below.)
|Postsecondary Transition Plan (PTP) Login
Authorized users should use the PTP system to create I-8 Transition Forms for all students with disabilities ages 14 and older. Authorized users will likely be transition coordinators, IEP coordinators / case managers, or special education teachers of students ages 14 and older. PTPs must be submitted to via the PTP application to DPI within 30 days of the IEP meeting date.
This page is intended to provide announcements and alerts regarding the PTP application.
|PTP Demonstration Site
Use this site to become familiar with PTP or to create a draft PTP. Data entered in the site will not be saved, but a PTP can be printed after all steps are completed. Parents/Families/Students/Agency providers are encouraged to use this site. No username or password is required to access the Demonstration Site.
