Post School Outcomes (PSO) Survey



Everyone Counts, Everyone In – Participating in the 2015 PSO Survey


♦ New Requirement – 2015 PSO Data Collection

All Arizona students who had an IEP in effect at the time of exiting high school as a graduate, drop-out or by aging out will be contacted to take the Post School Outcomes (PSO) Survey one year after leaving school. Conducting the PSO Survey is the responsibility of the school or district from which the student exited.

Graduating from high school and pursuing a productive adulthood is one of the more significant transitions faced by adolescents. Indicator 14, also known as the post school outcomes data collection, provides an opportunity for States and public education agencies (PEAs) to determine if youth with disabilities are positively engaged (i.e., enrolled in postsecondary education/training or employed) once they leave high school.
