Results from the PSO Survey

In June 2015, the Arizona Department of Education/Exceptional Student Services (ADE/ESS) launched Everyone Counts, Everyone In: Arizona’s Revised Post School Outcomes (PSO) Survey Collection. Each public education agency (PEA) that serves transition-aged students with disabilities is required to participate in the PSO Survey every year. Using a secure online data collection system, students who exited high school are contacted and administered an eight-question survey designed to capture student engagement in post-secondary education/training or employment. Data obtained from Everyone Counts, Everyone In facilitates results-driven analysis and improvement to secondary transition programs at the state and local levels. Click on the graphic below for a helpful guide and timeline that outlines the steps districts and charters should take to be prepared to conduct the PSO Survey.
