For clarification--when you say "homeschooling" what do you mean and what does your state say? Is this a cyber charter or online learning implemented at home? Or, if you are true homeschooling, is your child still eligible to receive services from the district?

Yes it's true homeschooling we are eligible for services. She has an active iep I was just wondering if the transition plan should be updated should there be any goals  related to transition plan's. I also hear about a transition evaluation is this different from or in addition to the normal tri annual evaluation.

Then yes, she should have a transition plan and all the appropriate evals that go with transition time.

What does your child want to do after HS graduation?  Work, more schooling?  Does the IEP prepare your child for this?  For example, if your child gets extra time for tests and wants to go to college, this is an accommodation they can get on SAT/ACT as well as on tests in college.  I'm not sure with a homeschooler, who applies to the testing companies for any accommodations.  In a public school, the guidance dept tends to do this.

So I see that I would have to ask for the transition evaluation I thought they would have done it if they thought she needed it she was last evaluated in 9th grade so I think she will be ready this year 11th grade or next 12th grade but will that be too late for the evaluation

My teen says she doesn't know and isn't ready to think about it I think she might want to go to college but she doesn't know what she wants to do I am trying to encourage her to look at community College so that way she can get an idea of what she wants plus I don't think they have to take Sat to get in to community College.

I'm in PA where a transition plan is needed starting at age 14.  It's 16 in IDEA.  If the public school is doing regular evals, IMO, they should be doing transition assessments at the age required by state regs.

I recently discovered that the ASVAB has a complementary eval that matches strengths as shown in the test with careers.  You can take the ASVAB & not go into the military.  It might be a good thing to look into if your child is unsure of what they want to do after HS.  The way the timeline works, 11th grade is when they take SAT/ACT and October/November is when they start applying to colleges in 12th grade.
