PTP Workaround 10/22/15


PTP Alert 10/16/15

We have had several reports come in stating that users are sometimes seeing a blank I-8 PDF page. We have not changed how the PDF is generated, but browser and/or Adobe updates may have created this issue.

If this occurs, you can a) try to open the application in a different browser (Internet Explorer versus Google) or b) download the PDF and open the record in a PDF reader rather than the browser.

Contact your local IT staff for further support.

PTP Enhancements and Fixes 5/28/15

This update addresses the issue raised in PTP Alert 5/08/15.

PTP Alert 05/08/15

If the meeting date of a PTP is May 1 or later, Transition Services and Courses of Study are required for the following school year rather than the current year if the student is not exiting. Due to this requirement, the 2014-2015 school year is no longer available to select in the dropdown list on these pages.

We have received multiple requests to add the current school year back to the dropdown list, but won’t be able to complete this work immediately. In the meantime, if you would like to add Transition Services and Courses of Study to 2014-2015 you can temporarily change the meeting date of the PTP to a date prior to May 1. 2014-2015 will then be available in the dropdown list on these pages. Be sure to change the meeting date back to the correct date prior to locking.

We will post an Enhancements and Fixes update once this functionality has been updated.

We experienced minor server issues on November 25th & 26th that left the PTP inaccessible, giving the message “Bad Gateway….” after a user attempted to login. The issue has been resolved.


PTP Alert 11/21/13

Beginning December 2, the PTP application will do a daily cleanup that will automatically delete any unlocked records created more than one year ago. Such records are likely drafts that were not implemented or duplicate records created in error. Locking records will prevent deletion.

  2. We experienced some login issues with PTP on 4/16/13 and in the morning of 4/17/13.  Login issues have been resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.


PTP Enhancements 4/8/13

PTP users with the access role of Director/Designee will now be able to access the “Delete PTP” feature in 2 additional ways:

  1. On the PTP Completion Page, select “Delete PTP” from the options provided.
  2. From the PTP Records - Students With No Associated WSN, click on the student’s name and the WSN match box will appear.

When developing the postsecondary goal in the area of education and training, a user should select “Other” and manually enter information if the student will be attending a Sheltered Workshop or Day Services Program.  See the Learn More button on this step for additional information, examples and resources.  See DPI’s summary of the OSEP guidance letter related to postsecondary transition planning for students with disabilities work placements and Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).


PTP Alert for 3/19/13:

The “Lock PTP” function has been restored to all PTP users.


PTP Alert for 3/15/13:

The “Lock PTP” function is currently unavailable to ALL users.  We hope to have this resolved early next week.  An update will be posted to this page when this has been rectified.   IEP teams may still create a new PTP; however, the PTP cannot be locked or revised at this time.
