IEL Releases New Policy Brief on Preparing Transition-Age Youth with Disabilities for Work

The Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL)  recently released Preparing Transition-Age Youth with Disabilities for Work: What School Leaders Need to Know About the New Legal Landscape. This new policy brief aims to inform school leaders about their responsibility to provide students with disabilities effective secondary school transition programs that prepare them for competitive integrated employment. Read the policy brief in English or Spanish as well as technical assistance guidance developed by the U.S. Department of Justice under the Obama Administration that was withdrawn in late December 2017. While the guidance was withdrawn, the body of case law still stands.
