Share this page

ANCOR is sharing this request for information by the Department of Education (DOE) because the transition from school disability supports to adult disability supports is a critical period for the individuals our members serve.

As written by the DOE:

Technical Assistance to Improve Postsecondary Transition Services

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos believes in the innate potential of every student and knows that access to high-quality services are an essential part of local, State, and Federal efforts to improve outcomes for all students and youth with disabilities. OSERS is seeking input from the public, particularly SEAs, LEAs, SVRAs, parents and CTE educators, and other relevant stakeholders on how best to provide TA to States in order to improve postsecondary transition services to all students and youth with disabilities. Additionally, OSERS seeks input on how best to strengthen and expand coordination and collaboration with OSERS Parent Training and Information Centers and other relevant TA centers.

We look forward to receiving your comments on or before October 2, 2019 at the OSERS Blog – Technical Assistance to Improve Postsecondary Transition Services.
