Tuesday Power Hour Series
3 pm to 4 pm
Our Tuesday Power Hour Series - Best Practices Forum is an opportunity for our state educators and transition leaders to grapple with and actuate strategies and support for our scholars' diverse needs and pathways to post-secondary opportunities. Together we will develop a framework to enhance academic and functional achievement and facilitate movement from school to post-school activities. These activities include post-secondary employment, education, vocational education, integrated employment (including supported employment), continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, and community participation.
Guest Speakers, Regional, District, and school-based Transition Leaders will share their transition best practices, processes, and tools, including assistive technology to engage in support transition, inclusion, vocational rehabilitation, Pre ETS and eligibility, barriers, and recommendations and spotlight Maines Transition successes.
Register in advance for each session. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Participants who take part in this Professional Development will receive one contact hour.
