Summary of Performance - SOP
"Strength lies in differences, not in similarities." - Stephen Covey
All students receiving special education who are graduating or exiting due to age must have a Summary of Performance (SOP) when they leave.
The SOP is a document that is intended to help facilitate a student's transition to postsecondary success. This document should include recommendations about ways to help a student meet their postsecondary goals.
