The Kentucky Post School Outcomes Center (KYPSO) has a new project logo. KYPSO, a project of the University of Kentucky Human Development Institute, introduces a new logo that signifies growth and blossoming to represent the transition from high school to adult life for students with disabilities.
It takes a substantial investment of time and effort for growth and blossoming to occur. For the past decade, the majority of KYPSO’s work has involved the Kentucky Department of Education, special education cooperatives, and some local education agencies. Although their work with these partners continue, their goal is to increase the capacity of more local education agencies, teachers, parents, adult service providers and other community groups to provide exemplary transition planning.
KYPSO collects vital data that can and should be used to improve student post school success. Their annual administration of the Youth One Year Out former student interview (or the “YOYO”) will measure outcomes including employment, postsecondary education and independent living one year after a student exits high school. The public can access and search data categories at the KyPSO web site.
In addition to providing data, KYPSO provides technical assistance to anyone interested in learning ways to promote and support transition planning.
