Community of Practice-Transition

Community of Practice Logo

The CoP-T is a project designed to improve the transition outcomes for students with disabilities.  Three small communities have been convened to address improving the transitions of students a) from early childhood programs to the school districts; b) from secondary schools to post-secondary education, employment and community living; and c) with social and emotional needs to and from behavioral interventions.  Members of each small community are working together to identify nationally-recognized best practices that can be appropriately implemented in Wyoming and practices in the state that are already leading to successful transitions as well as service gaps that present challenges for successful transition outcomes.  The communities will develop a guidance document for the Wyoming Department of Education by December 2013 that will recommend improved transition practices for every school district in the state. Funded by the Wyoming Department of Education, Special Programs Division and Wyoming Institute for Disabilities.
