About this Event

Interagency collaboration is characterized as an essential feature of school to work transition, yet the field still grapples with it; policymakers strive to define it; researchers struggle with evaluating it; and practitioners have difficulty doing it.

Representatives from Maryland State Departments of Education, Labor, Rehabilitation Services, and Disabilities will share how they successfully executed meaningful and effective “super” Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) regarding transitioning youth. Each agency representative describes their contributions, and the resulting benefits, involved in the interagency collaborative process and building sustainable practices that improve student outcomes.

Training Objectives: 

  • Describe an over-view of inter-agency collaborative systems and methods at the state level.
  • Describe the foundational steps required to build partnerships among key state level agencies involved in executing sustainable MOUs for transitioning youth.
  • Offer an example of a “Super” MOU, executed at the state level, with details regarding the steps required and the specific benefits that accrue to each partner.
