Putnam Transition Consortium: Improving Post-secondary Outcomes for Young Adults in Putnam County with Disabilities
Inter-agency collaboration is an evidence-based practice in improving post-school outcomes for students with disabilities. It is a key component of a transition program that moves students from secondary settings (e.g., middle school/high school) to adult life, utilizing comprehensive transition planning and education that creates individualized opportunities, services, and supports to help students achieve their post school goals in education/training, employment, and independent living.
Our mission is to improve transition plans and post-secondary outcomes for Putnam County youth and young adults through communication and education of all transition stakeholders, including students, families, schools, and community agencies.
Our goal is smooth and effective transition for students so they can live, learn, and earn in our community.
Our model is a Community Transition Team, to improve community awareness, coordination, and communication among service providers, educators, community agencies, organizations, and families in Putnam County. This team will support students in achieving their goals after high school.
Our plan of action will be to meet monthly to share information, questions, and resources. Pertinent transition topics, news, and events will be shared. Each meeting will contain a mini-teach from one of our members, collaborative case studies, and community planning.
