Aligning the HSBP with the IEP

As we enter this school year, there are many questions about the High School and Beyond Plan (HSBP) and how it relates to the Individualized Education Program (IEP). Just a reminder: HSBPs are not the sole responsibility of Special Education (SE) teachers. SE teachers are members of the teams that support students in creating their student-centered, student-facing graduation requirement.

Informational resources about HSBP and IEP alignment are available on both OSPI and CCTS’s websites. If you have questions after reviewing these materials, please email

Special Education Consistency Index

CCTS is in conversation with OSPI about retiring the Special Education Consistency Index (SECI) platform until a more thorough needs-assessment can be completed. While we recognize the value of the platform for compliance, it needs significant restructuring to continue to function.

As we determine a timeline for next steps, the training course through eLearning is no longer accepting new registrants. CCTS will continue to monitor the SECI platform, but technical assistance may be delayed.

If you have questions or concerns about retiring the SECI, please email
