Federal and State Requirements

In Ohio, students with disabilities ages 14 or younger, if appropriate, formally enter into the secondary transition planning process. A truly successful transition process is the result of comprehensive planning that is driven by the student’s preferences, interests, needs, and strengths . This comprehensive planning moves students toward successful future outcomes in competitive, integrated employment, education, and independent living.

Ohio Longitudinal Transition Study

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that states report the post-school engagement of students with disabilities in post-secondary education and employment. IDEA also requires that all school districts collect outcome data for their students with individualized education programs (IEPs) at least once every six years. Ohio fulfills this obligation through the Ohio Longitudinal Transition study (OLTS).
