Our Mission is to help state education agencies establish practical and rigorous data collection systems that will measure and profile the post-school experiences of youth with disabilities (i.e., Indicator 14). The results of collecting Indicator 14 data will be used for national, state, and local reporting and, most importantly, to guide and improve transition services to this population.

NPSO is phasing out...


As of December 2015 the NPSO website will no longer be active. All content can be found at the National Technical Assitance Center on Transition's (NTACT) website, . Please bookmark your browsers so that you will be able to locate all NPSO tools and products in the future when needed!

Indicator 14 provides one opportunity for States and Districts to determine if youth with disabilities are positively engaged (i.e., enrolled in postsecondary education/ training or employed) once they leave high school.”
