The WVDE Office of Special Programs posts meeting announcements and documents for meetings on this site for the WV Transition Collaborative Community of Practice (WV TCCoP). During 2009-2010 a “community” was established to support quality transition services for all youth with IEPs in WV. The community is made up of representatives from districts in WV interested in developing expertise and skills to provide quality secondary transition services to students with IEPs.
District and school representatives who are assigned to coordinate transition services have the opportunity to build local expertise for implementing effective practices for secondary transition in four specific areas:
· Transition in the IEP process and providing quality services,
· Improving graduation rates,
· Reducing dropout rates and
· Successful post school outcomes.
Participants deepen their understanding and implementation of transition services for students with disabilities by participating in face-to-face workshops, e-discussions, teleconferences and book studies.
Individuals who are responsible for implementing transition services at the district or school level, Institutional Education Programs, WV Schools for the Deaf and the Blind and RESA may be interested in discussions and professional development opportunities through this collaborative. Additionally, adult service providers, families and students interested in this topic are welcome.
The pages on this site include agendas and documents for the face-to-face workshops for the WV TCCoP.
Look for future announcements for opportunities to participate.
