Exiting - Part B Community of Practice
The mission of the Exiting - Part B Community of Practice is to
create opportunities for participants to learn from each other about
how to improve state and community capacity to prepare all students
for successful school completion and successful postschool outcomes
such as postsecondary education, employment, and independent living.
The Exiting - Part B Community is a place where state and local
administrators, educators, and TA providers can exchange ideas and
strategies related to:
- Reducing dropout rates for students with disabilities.
- Increasing graduation rates for students with disabilities.
- Reducing the gap that exists between the graduation rates of
students with and without disabilities.
- Providing successful transition from high school to postsecondary
education, meaningful employment, civic engagement, and successful
adult community living.
- Sharing research-based programs, practices, products, and policies
that increase student completion rates and improve postschool

problems related to exiting.
