Connecticut Post-School Outcomes Survey (2009-2013)

Project Description

Objective & Project Description

This research reflects the results of a large-scale census method survey conducted by the Principle Investigators under contract with the CTDOE to determine outcome data for all students with disabilities one-year after exiting the public school system. Beginning in the early summer, individuals were mailed a survey sponsored by the Connecticut State Department of Education to obtain follow-up information on post-school outcomes at least one year after exiting public school. The survey included items in three broad categories: 1) Postsecondary Education and Training Status; 2) Employment Status; and 3) Additional Information. Three waves of mailings were conducted each year of the project. This research fulfills the Federal Indicator-14 requirement for the state of Connecticut.
