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.
