Preparing for Cyclical Monitoring: A Focus on Secondary Transition

In response to the accountability requirements under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 2004 (IDEA), Part B State Performance Plans (SPP), the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN) and Intermediate Unit Transition Consultants will be providing local education agencies (LEAs) targeted, sustained professional development regarding effective secondary transition practices that will reasonably enable students to meet post-secondary outcomes (Aligning Indicators 1, 2, 13 and 14).

LEAs throughout Pennsylvania will have the opportunity to participate in several training protocols that will enhance their ability to provide effective programs and supports for students transitioning from high school to adult life.

September 15, 2022

Identified staff members will need to register on the PaTTAN training calendar for the Preparing for Cyclical Monitoring: A Focus on Secondary Transition on 9/16/2022. After registering, participants will receive directions and access codes to join the Schoology course a few days before the course begins. There will be three separate sections of the course. LEAs will use the Schoology access code commensurate with their location in the state: west, central, or east.

If you are unsure of your region please see the Penn Link you received about Indicator 13 as your LEA's region is identified on said document. The Schoology course must be completed by all identified staff by February 28, 2023.

In addition to the supports within the course, a discussion regarding the sustained professional development available via PaTTAN and Intermediate Units to identified local educational agencies (LEAs) based on IEP pre-reviews using the Pennsylvania Indicator 13 checklist and/or identified coaching needs will also take place.
