  • IDC-Sponsored Event
This webinar launched IDC's Back-to-Basics Webinar Series for new Part C state staff, staff with new indicator responsibilities, and those who wanted a refresher on ins-and-outs of the SPP/APR indicators and related Section 618 data collections. The webinar focused on beginning level information on Indicator C8 (Early Childhood Transition), including a review of C8's specific criteria and data sources; steps and calculations required to collect, analyze, and report Indicator C8 data; and any differences or similarities between Indicator C8 and the other indicators.

Expected outcomes of the webinar were that viewers would have a better understanding of Indicator C8 transition requirements to ensure high-quality data for SPP/APR reporting and increased knowledge about available resources and supports for understanding and reporting Indicator C 8 data.
