Postschool Outcome Data Community of Practice
In October 2004, NCSET began facilitating the Technical Assistance Community of Practice on Collecting Postschool Outcome Data on Youth with Disabilities. The mission of the Collecting Postschool Outcome Data on Youth with Disabilities Community of Practice is to create opportunities for participants to learn from each other and experts about how to build state and local capacity to collect data on the postschool outcomes of youth with disabilities and to use this information to improve these policies and practices at the state and local level.
This Community of Practice is now being facilitated by the recently funded National Post-School Outcomes Center. The Community of Practice continues to offer participants two main ways to interact and learn from each other:
- An e-mail based discussion forum or listserv: To access this section of the community, you must sign up to be a member of the community listserv. Specific communication guidelines and ground rules will be provided once individuals subscribe. To sign up, please go to the National Post-School Outcomes Center Web site.
- Topical teleconference calls: The teleconference calls, conducted on a regular basis, are often co-hosted with partner organizations, technical assistance network organizations, and other collaborating groups and organizations.These calls provide an opportunity for community members to interact and ask questions of presenters. For more information, please go to the National Post-School Outcomes Center Web site.
