Report of Regents P-12 Education/Adult Career and Continuing Education (ACCES) Joint Meeting Committee to The Board of Regents
Your P-12 Education/ACCES Committee held its scheduled meeting on September 16, 2012. All members were present, with the exception of Regent Chapey, who was excused.
MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
Transition Planning and Services for Students with Disabilities
Your Committee was provided with information on new Department initiatives to improve transition planning and employment outcomes for student with disabilities. Discussion included an update on specific strategies that ACCES-VR and P-12 Office of Special Education are taking to address strategic plan action goals. Specific action goals discussed were strengthening collaborations across the Department, schools, stakeholders and community providers; expanding options for paid and unpaid work experiences; and, devoting additional IDEA and RSA resources to improve transition services and outcomes for individuals with disabilities. If the Board of Regents supports these action goals, the Department will implement them. [P-12/ACCES (D) 1]
