202C: Using Assessment to Write Rigorous Annual Goals to Improve Student Outcomes

 Presented by: Kacy Little Owl, Transition Coordinator, Weld Re8/3J School District

Session Description

Transition assessment is key in providing meaningful information of individual student preferences, interests and needs. Data collected through assessment is the golden thread in the transition process and provides a foundation for developing student-driven, post school and annual goals designed to empower students through services and activities. Best practices incorporated throughout the goal setting process work to meet student needs, enable student involvement and better prepare youth in the areas of academic and/or functional achievement and postsecondary readiness. This session will explore the process of using data derived through the ongoing steps of transition assessment to set high expectations and write rigorous annual goals to improve student outcomes.
