Transition Capacity Building Initiative for All Students

Nebraska

Effective and successful transition planning for All students requires school staff to be knowledgeable of a broad range of post school agencies and resources, which can be time intensive and frustrating. Well-functioning School-Community-Agency Partnerships coordinate time, effort, and resources. In an effort to build transition capacity and assist school districts and agencies in becoming more efficient and effective, the Nebraska Department of Education is offering assistance and support funded through the NDE Transition Grant in facilitating a School District- Agency-Community Partnership meeting at your school district.

Meeting Objectives:

• Increase efficiency in transition planning of services and activities (IEP requirements) Reduce duplications of: assessments, career exploration, transition experiences

• Expand job shadow, work-based learning, and supported work experiences

• Collaboration and Partnership building between school and agency staffs
