    Abstract: To gauge progress in addressing the needs of youth with 
disabilities, the U.S. Department of Education is sponsoring a five-
year longitudinal study focused on the educational and transitional 
experiences of youth between the ages of 13 and 21 in December 2011. 
The study focuses on three sets of research questions: What are the 
characteristics of youth with disabilities? What services and 
accommodations do they receive and what are their courses of study? 
What are their transitional experiences as they leave high school and 
their educational, social, and economic outcomes?
    To shed light on the distinctive experiences of youth with 
disabilities the study will contrast them with those of youth without 
disabilities. The study will also compare the experiences of youth with 
disabilities with those of two previous cohorts of youth with similar 
disabilities, providing information on progress in addressing the needs 
of these youth.
    Districts and youth will be randomly selected to ensure that they 
are nationally representative. The study sample will include 
approximately 300 school districts and 15,000 students. Phase I data 
collection will occur in spring 2012 and spring 2014, when sample 
members will be ages 13-21 and 15-23, respectively. The study will 
collect data from parents, youth, principal teachers, and student 
school records.
