Secondary Education Transition Model.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins.; American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
The Secondary Education Transition Model project at Colorado State University-Fort Collins represents a local and state commitment to serve students with severe handicaps who are moving into community work and living roles. These comprehensive transition services begin at the secondary education level and extend into the adult service system. The six major components of the 3-year project are: community-wide transition planning leading to development of a model; preparation of local transition teams comprised of existing education and service personnel; preparation of related service and education personnel at the preservice level; implementation of transition services leading to community employment and independent living outcomes; project dissemination and replication; and on-going evaluation. To date, students involved in this project have not graduated from school, so no conclusions can be drawn. However, it is apparent that adding the transition component with interagency collaboration is enriching the individual student planning process. Appendices include: a Core Transition Team Position description; Individualized Education Transition Planning (IETP) and IEP/ITP formats, forms, and timelines; an IETP and IEP/ITP meeting evaluation form; and an assessment tool. Charts are included. Contains 13 references. (SM)
