    Abstract: The National Longitudinal Transition Study 2012 (NLTS 
2012) is the third in a series of studies being conducted by the U.S. 
Department of Education (ED), with the goal of describing the 
characteristics, secondary school experiences, transition, and outcomes 
of youth who receive special education services under IDEA. Phase II of 
NLTS 2012 will utilize high school and post-high school administrative 
records data to collect information in three broad areas important to 
understanding outcomes for youth with disabilities: (1) High school 
course-taking and completion (2) post-secondary education and training, 
and (3) employment and earnings after high school. Phase II collected 
information will build on a survey of a nationally representative set 
of students with and without IEPs from Phase I of the study to address 
the following questions:
     To what extent do youth with disabilities who receive 
special education services under IDEA make progress through high school 
compared with other youth, including those identified for services 
under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act? For students with 
disabilities, has high school course taking and completion rates 
changed over the past few decades?
     Are youth with disabilities achieving the post-high school 
outcomes envisioned by IDEA, and how do their college, training, and 
employment rates compare with those of other youth?
     How do these high school and postsecondary experiences and 
outcomes vary by student characteristics, including their disability 
category, age, sex, race/ethnicity, English Learner status, income 
status, and type of high school attended (including regular public 
school, charter school, career/technical school, special education 
school, or other State or Federally-operated institution)?
    The NLTS 2012 sample includes 21,959 students ranging in age from 
13 to 21 in December 2011. The sample was selected to include 
sufficient number of students in each of the 12 federally defined 
disability categories, and adequate number of students without 
disabilities, including both students with a Section 504 plan and 
students with neither an IEP nor a Section 504 plan. To meet the 
study's objective, data will be collected from the following sources: 
(1) School district administrative records, including transcripts, from 
districts participating in NLTS 2012; (2) postsecondary enrollment 
information through the National Student Clearinghouse, (3) student 
financial aid data from ED's Federal Student Aid Office (FSA), (4) 
employment and earnings data from the Social Security Administration 
(SSA); and (5) information about vocational rehabilitative services and 
supports youth received from ED's Rehabilitative Services 
Administration (RSA). Data collection activities expected to result in 
public burden are the collection of administrative data from school 
districts and requests for consent from sample members and their
