Post-School Outcomes Resources

Compliance and B-14

The federal law that governs how public and state institutions provide special education and related services to youth with disabilities is under IDEA. In order to comply with IDEA, states must report annually to the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). One of the indicators being reported is B-14, or Post-School Outcomes. B-14 is the measurement of any post-school engagement outcomes for youth with disabilities. It is defined, within IDEA, as the percentage of youth who:

  • are no longer in secondary school,
  • had IEPs in effect at the time they left school, and
  • within one year of leaving high school, met reporting requirements for one of the post-school engagement outcomes.

PSO Resources

In order to assist Oregon School Districts in the Post-School Outcomes collection, we have provided a series of four training sessions along with additional resources to inform statewide data collectors. Under these four categories, you will find the recorded PowerPoint document as well as additional resources that pertain to the category.
