Oregon Department of Education Post School Outcomes (PSO) Secondary Transitions Group
To facilitate the sharing of information in the area of post-secondary outcomes, TIMS has created a collaborative work space for educators working with issues relating to successful transition from school to adult life for students. The topics will be developed through questions from the field, materials submitted by group members, or items posted by Jackie Burr, the site moderator. This group offers an opportunity to connect with others around Oregon. Please include your interests in your profile that you complete when you join the group.

Oregon Department of Education Data Services

This is a contract between the Oregon Department of Education and the Teaching Research Institute. Brian Johnson has been supporting this contract for over twenty-five years. Brian regularly works with data across the educational spectrum, from early childhood to post-secondary, and assists states with the implementation of changing federal special education regulations, including FERPA and the development of funding models. Some of the recent projects that ODE has required of Brian have focused on using SPSS to analyze large special education data sets.

Transition Community Network (TCN)

The Transition Community Network site was created to provide a "one-stop shop" for resources related to transitioning youth with disabilities to adulthood in Oregon. This site has links to resources for students, families, teachers, administrators, and supporting agencies to create opportunities for the students to achieve successful futures, and materials for districts to help complete the Post School Outcomes (PSO) Follow Up collection to learn how Oregon students are doing one year out of school.
