Secondary Transition

We know that a student-centered, individually designed approach helps young people with disabilities transition seamlessly into a life of economic independence and meaningful participation in the community.

For the Secondary Transition Imperative — in partnership with national experts and organizations — we provide an implementation framework of technical assistance, self-assessment, and support that mirrors current special education accountability and compliance under state and federal law.

Through this framework, our goal as educational leaders is to implement a seamless and comprehensive statewide system of coordinated services for children with disabilities and their families in homes and communities to narrow the school readiness gap.

Please explore the latest Secondary Transition webinars, resources, and articles below.
