Special Education Directors,
Please share the following message with your staff who support Post School Outcomes (PSO) Survey data collection.
The ADE/ESS Secondary Transition team would like to thank those who participated in the 2021 PSO data collection season. The PSO Survey helps PEAs collect and report information to meet Indicator 14 requirements. Between June 1 and September 30 of this year, PEAs statewide worked hard to reconnect with former students who had IEPs when they exited high school during the 2019–2020 school year. Through their efforts, 6,245 former students responded to the survey, for a 78.7% participation rate with 71.8% of respondents engaged in postsecondary education/training or employment. A more detailed view of this year's PSO Survey results will be posted on the PSO Website by October 31, 2021.
Our team wants to recognize PEAs that performed exceptionally this season to complete PSO requirements. We are excited to share the PSO Celebration Website, which highlights the PEAs that completed all PSO surveys and met criteria for one of the following categories:
- PSO All-Star—Met or exceeded the statewide participation rate goal of 80% and engagement rate average of 71.8%
- PSO MVP—Met or exceeded the statewide participation rate goal of 80%
Please join us in congratulating Arizona's exemplary PEAs for their hard work and dedication!
