Directions. This survey is divided into five transition planning and service sections: (A) parent notification, (B) participation in meetings, (C) IEP content, (D) agency responsibility, and (E) other transition practices. For each section, a range of strategies (e.g., 1a - 1e) are described that school districts might use to implement the transition component of IDEA. The response options, defined below, are based on the assumption that some strategies are used more often and others only in special circumstances. Circle the number that best describes your school/district for each activity listed under each question.
