IDOE will establish a stakeholder group of transition-age students with Individualized Education Programs (IEP), ages 14 to 22, who are willing to participate in discussions surrounding Indiana’s State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) in hopes to increase youth involvement in statewide decisions. This group would focus on graduation and drop out trends for IEP students, secondary transitions for students over 14, and post-school outcomes for former IEP students. The parent/family stakeholder group will expand to discuss similar topics, as well as assessments, school discipline, disability representation across categories, parent involvement, school environment, and more. All stakeholder group sessions will be held virtually, and the tentative initial student stakeholder group would be held from 1 to 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 7. Apply here to be considered for either stakeholder group. Contact IDOE’s Office of Special Education with any questions.
