Goal 1.1.A Youth: Increase the percentage of youth with disabilities (applicants prior to age 22) exiting the VR Program after receiving services that achieve an employment outcome and exceed the national standard of 55.8 percent. 
 
Baseline FFY 2010: 42.5 percent achieved an employment outcome; does not meet the RSA Performance Standard. 
 
Performance for FFY 2011: 46.9 percent achieved an employment outcome; does not meet the RSA Performance Standard. 
 
Performance for FFY 2012: 55.7 percent achieved an employment outcome; does not meet the RSA Performance Standard. 
 
Performance Target: Meet or exceed the RSA Performance Standard of 55.8 percent. 
 
Results: The percentage of youth with disabilities that achieved an employment outcome after receiving VR services has increased by 13.2 percentage points, a significant increase. In FFY 2012 ACCES-VR achieved a performance indicator of 55.7 percent which is just below the national standard of 55.8 percent by one-tenth of one percent.
