Welcome to the Kentucky Post School Outcomes Center

The Youth One Year Out (YOYO) former student interview is now open. The deadline to submit the YOYO is August 31, 2024.

About us:

The goal of the Kentucky Post School Outcomes Center (KYPSO) is to increase the capacity of Local Education Agencies (LEAs), teachers, parents, and adult service providers to provide exemplary transition planning and increase student post-school success.  KYPSO works closely with these units as well as Special Education Regional Technical Assistance Centers (SERTACs) and the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to provide data and training related to improving transition outcomes for youth with disabilities. KYPSO develops and oversees the Youth One Year Out former student interview (YOYO) which collects valuable post-school outcome data. This data includes measures of employment for students with disabilities one year after exiting high school which includes their experiences and the degree to which they may be considered integrated and competitive. This data is often used for research by both KYPSO and partners.

KYPSO is currently funded by the Kentucky Department of Education/Office of Special Education and Early Learning. We are in the process of seeking additional external funding to conduct further research into factors predictive of post-school success for Kentucky youth.

We hope this page will be a useful tool for improving education and transition services for all students.
