It is a local decision. We want ensure we can track students with actual disabilities. Generally speaking, proof is not required if the disabilities are self-reported, or are identified through assessments they received.

The AEP Office can request intake forms via the newsletter and post what is received from consortia members on Web site.

The Consortium List can be found here

If your questions are related to WIOA II - you can contact your CDE consultant directly. If your questions are related to CAEP, TAP is your first point of contact.

If WIOA II and you do not know who your CDE consultant is, please email TAP and they can help identify who your consultant is.

CAEP is not the WIOA II grant – but we follow all the same protocols and metrics. A local assessment policy would be a good idea, and if you are using CASAS/TOPSPro, you must have a local assessment policy to pre/post test. We would suggest you check with your regional consortium on what the practice is for the region.

The percent shown includes students who are enrolled in high school.

The numbers on the ACS tab are subcategories of the general population (in other words, you do not need to worry about the 16-17 year old category).

If you apply the Disconnected Youth filter, this will give you a more accurate picture of the youth population that would be aligned with the CAEP eligibility. Since 16-17 year olds are allowable under WIOA II, they are included in the overall number; however, they are disaggregated out by age so that users can identify their target population based on CAEP eligibility of 18+ (i.e., they can exclude the 16-17 year olds from their counts).
