In the near future, some Missouri School Districts may be asked to participate in the National Longitudinal Transition Study 2012 (NTLS 2012). This study is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and conducted by Mathematica Policy Research, the Institute on Community Integration at the University of Minnesota and Decision Information Resources. The study will collect data on both students with and without disabilities, including those with 504 plans under the Rehabilitation Act. The study will assist in the understanding of how all students are being served, their achievements, and the barriers to postsecondary success. The results of this study will inform ongoing improvement of programs and policies.
