State Secondary Transition Interagency Committee
The State Secondary
Transition Interagency Committee (SSTIC) is a state-level interagency team
designed to facilitate inter-organizational understanding, identify needs
grounded in data, identify and realign capacity building resources, facilitate
collaboration and avoid duplication, and share responsibility and planning to
improve secondary transition. SSTIC was initially called the Transition
Steering Committee and was funded by the National Association of State
Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) to build state capacity. The committee
meets twice per year with additional conference calls of its subcommittees.
The SSTIC has several
subcommittees that are charged with identifying gaps, barriers, and potential
solutions; reviewing recommendations from various partners with secondary
transition interests; and may include identifying issues that need to be taken
back to respective agencies. The work of the subcommittees is expected to
culminate in goals for implementation and targets or outcomes for each
sub-committee (e.g., products, papers) vetted by the full committee.
The SSTIC subcommittees are:
