Guide to Improving Interagency Collaboration in the Transition of Students with Disabilities.
Noll, Ann A.
This document was produced for the dual purpose of documenting the methods used between 1990 and 1992 to train interagency teams on interagency collaboration in planning for the school-to-work or school-to-postsecondary education transition of disabled students in Florida and presenting step-by-step guidelines for developing and maintaining interagency partnerships to facilitate disabled students' transitions. Chapter 1 provides a historical perspective on the changes that have been occurring in Florida and throughout the United States with regard to collaborative activities for students with disabilities. Chapters 2 through 4, which are written in workbook format, contain exercises for interagency teams and sample responses and/or documents designed to help employees of various agencies involved in transition planning for disabled students learn to understand each other and develop interagency cooperative agreements and interagency action plans. Presented in chapter 5 are examples of successful practices that school districts and service agencies in Pasco and Volusia counties have adopted to develop a good working relationship with one another. Appended is the text of the 29-page Volusia/Flagler community transition team interagency cooperative agreement. (Contains 11 references.) (MN)
