Connecting High School Reform to the Needs of Youth with Disabilities: Instruction, Credentialing, and Assessment

Monday, June 18, 2007- Tuesday, June 19, 2007
Location: Bethesda, MD


The National High School Alliance and the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth, with support from The HSC Foundation and the Office of Disability and Employment Policy at the United States Department of Labor (ODEP), invite you to participate in a meeting focused on the instruction, assessment and credentialing of youth with disabilities in high school.


In the current high school reform conversation, the inclusion of vulnerable student groups, including students with disabilities, is rarely addressed in explicit ways. This meeting will help identify strategies to address these issues in policies at the federal, state, and local level.


In addition to informing policy, these discussions will build awareness and understanding of these issues across multiple sectors. Participants will include leaders from the practice, policy, and research worlds-representing multiple stakeholder groups and a cross section of views and perspectives.
