In December, the Student-Centered Transitions Network had our first face-to-face meeting with who we call "The Powerhouse of 20!" The Powerhouse of 20 are the 20 education specialists for transition from the Education Service Centers (ESCs) across the state.
At this meeting, we had an opportunity to visit with Laurie VanderPloeg, the Director for the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) in Washington D.C. In addition to sharing her vision for special education in the United States, we also had an opportunity to share our vision for Transition in Texas. We look forward to sharing more great things happening in Texas with her again soon, so please reach out and let us know about the great transition services in your district or charter.
