Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) is looking to establish a stakeholder feedback group consisting of transition age youth with IEPs, ages 14-22, that would be willing to participate in discussions around Indiana’s State Performance Plan/ Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR). We are hoping to increase the amount of youth involvement regarding the decisions being made for youth in our state. The focus of this group would be to discuss Graduation (of youths with IEPs), Drop Out (of youths with IEPs), Secondary Transition and goals (of youths 14+), and Post-School Outcomes (of youths with IEPs that are no longer in school).
We are also looking to further expand our Parent/Family Stakeholder group. Discussions for the Parent/Family Stakeholder group would be regarding the same topics as the student group, as well as Statewide Assessments, School Discipline, Representation across different Disability Categories, Parent Involvement, School Environment, Preschool Outcomes, Dispute Resolution, Child Find/ Initial Evaluations, and Transition from First Steps to School Age Programming.
All sessions for Stakeholder Groups will be held virtually.
Tentative Date for Youth Stakeholder Feedback Group is September 7th, 2022 from 1-2:30pm EST.
