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. 

Vision

Unifying stakeholders to best support the post-secondary transition of young adults with disabilities.

Mission

Through partnership and collaboration, providing outstanding post-secondary outcomes in the areas of education, employment and community integration for young adults with disabilities.

Taskforce Meetings

The taskforce meets quarterly to educate and update members and to strategize the implementation of practices that will improve post-secondary outcomes for transition age youth.  To this end, the taskforce solicits attendee involvement in quarterly and annual projects.  These core teams focus on projects related to transition elements such as competitive integrated employment (CIE), business partnerships, transition planning and transportation.
