The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's Office of Special Education Planning & Policy Development (SEPP) has a new Secondary Transition website. You can find it by going to their home page,www.doe.mass.edu/sped, and then clicking on the “Secondary Transition” link in the left-hand menu.
Massachusetts is looking closely at how to better support the transition services requirements of IDEA 2004. On March 9, 2012 the Governor Patrick signed H. 3720 (formerly H.159) An Act to Promote the Successful Transition of Students with Disabilities
On October 24 2015, Mass Advocates for Children’s Boston Special Education- Transition Workforce Taskforce released the task force report: “Inclusive Employment and Career for Boston Youth With Disabilities: Pathways to the Talent Pipeline”. They had a great turnout- 14 resource tables and over 90 attendees filled the room at the beautiful State Street facility.
