Midyear Cadre - Improving Outcomes for Students with Complex Support Needs
| 8:00 - 5:00
State teams review/update their team plan and highlight any goals/activities that specifically target students with complex support needs – prior the Oct. 23rd meeting with members of their state team
Why does NTACT host a mid-year meeting with State teams and who should attend?
This year the Mid-Year Cadre Meeting is intended to provide interdisciplinary teams with an opportunity to (a) consider progress on their capacity building or technical assistance plans to improve student outcomes in their state, (b) increase their knowledge of effective resources, practices, and activities that support successful post-secondary outcomes for students with complex support needs (c) connect with peers from other states.
While team configuration at the Cadre Meeting is often smaller than the Capacity Building Institute, team members may include representatives from state or local special education, state or local career and technical education, state or local vocational rehabilitation, state or state or local secondary education, institutes of higher education (personnel preparation faculty or disability services or program personnel), parent training and information centers, youth organizations, state or local developmental disability or mental health…any organization or individual serving as a stakeholder in the State’s improvement activities regarding outcomes for students and youth with disabilities.
Interdisciplinary state teams will:
- Increase knowledge regarding how IDEA, WIOA, and the CMS-HCBS Final Rule can impact the planning and support of students with complex needs
- Increase knowledge of effective cross-system resources, strategies and activities for students with complex support needs to achieve successful post-secondary outcomes
- Address state planning strategies to include and/or enhance successful post-secondary outcomes for students with complex support needs
- Share progress and challenges with TA providers and state colleagues on capacity building plans to improve outcomes for students with disabilities
