Indicator 13 FAQ

The National Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center created a frequently asked questions document, based on questions from the field and responses from NSTTAC and OSEP in 2006 and again in 2010. NTACT has updated the document in response to more recent questions. OSEP has reviewed the document; however, this document should not be interpreted as official instructions from the U.S Department of Education. States should continue to partner with their OSEP contact regarding data collection for Indicator 13. Questions about this document? Email us:
