Transition Collaborative Updates

April 14, 2023

The goal of the Transition Collaborative is to improve transition planning activities for students who qualify for services from the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA). In 2020, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction released Transition Collaborative Summative Report the that includes research and data on transition, recommendations for improving transition outcomes for students with disabilities in Washington, and more.

In 2022, Washington State Legislature passed SSB5790, which strengthened critical supports for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by moving forward the Transition Collaborative's four recommendations: Expanding Statewide School to Work program, establishing a Transition Council, Interagency Transition Networks (ITNs), and data share agreement with OSPI, DDA & DVR.
