The successful transition from high school to community for Kentucky youth has been a focus of the Human Development Institute (HDI) at the University of Kentucky since the early 1980s. From model demonstrations, to systems change, and to state improvement grants, the HDI has partnered with our colleagues across the state to improve post-school outcomes for Kentucky youth.
The current Kentucky Transition Signal project is funded through the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) Division of Exceptional Children (DECS) State Improvement Grant. The Kentucky Transition Signalís mission is to facilitate the KDE/DECS goals of decreasing the drop out rate for students with disabilities; increasing the rate of graduation with a standard diploma; assuring that post-school goals are addressed with student Individual Education Programs; and increasing the percentage of students with IEPs who are working and/or continuing their education one year after high school exit.
