In order to continue the national conversation which occurred at the National Leadership Summit in 2003, NCSET in partnership with federal agencies and national organizations co-hosted a second National Leadership Summit on Improving Results for Youth in Washington, D.C. in June 14-15, 2005. This event convened state-level teams of policymakers to examine the progress made in the implementation of the strategic action plans developed at the 2003 Summit, and further built state capacity to improve high school experiences that lead to successful postschool outcomes for all youth.

Washington, D.C.

In response to the need to improve secondary education and postschool outcomes for youth with disabilities, NCSET hosted its first National Leadership Summit on Improving Results for Youth. More than 250 state agency leaders, policymakers, and professionals representing general education, special education, career and technical education, workforce development, vocational rehabilitation, and other agencies participated. Parents and youth with disabilities also participated on several of the state teams. Teams representing 42 States and other entities, including the Pacific Rim territories, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Bureau of Indian Affairs, attended. The purpose of the two-day event was to build state capacity to develop more results-driven state systems so that youth with disabilities achieve more desirable postschool outcomes. The Summit format was built around the work of state teams rather than individuals which allowed states to harness and channel the collective expertise of a diverse team of stakeholders within each state.
