Padgett, Sidney, Ed.
This monograph presents the Arkansas Transition Agreement developed by the Interagency Council on Self Sufficiency (ICSS), which has the goal of developing, implementing, and monitoring a statewide process for transition of students with disabilities from school to integrated postsecondary education, employment, and community living. Following a foreword which details prevalence data, the transition agreement is presented, containing a mission statement, definitions, eligibility statement, value statements, a diagram of transition service delivery, exit criteria for public schools, and a time line of services from eighth grade to post-school. Appendices, which make up about three quarters of the monograph, include: (1) roles and responsibilities for students, parents/guardians, the ICSS, government agencies and government programs such as the Arkansas Division of Rehabilitation Services and the Division of Children and Family Services, and employers; (2) team membership and functions; (3) an Individual Transition Plan form; (4) a matrix of services such as assessment, vocational rehabilitation, and consumer support, organized by government agency providing the services; (5) descriptions of government agencies involved; (6) an outline for issue resolution for local level interagency transition teams; (7) a work plan; (8) other forms, such as a transition planning menu and a student information form; and (9) a list of Arkansas advocacy organizations.
