TRANSITION SERVICES TASKFORCE

Founded in 2013, by five of the consortiums north county Workability I coordinators, the initial and continuing purpose of the Transition Services Taskforce is to promote collaboration among the following:

  • San Diego Regional Center
  • The Department of Rehabilitation
  • Transition agencies and services
  • School District staff (administrators, teachers, related services)
  • Families (including students)
  • Employers

The benefits of this collaboration are evidenced by increased stakeholder awareness of post-secondary options for transition aged youth, increased development of CIE placements and, when appropriate, early placement of students in supported employment opportunities.
