Transition Tennessee held a community conversation on Monday at the Greene Technology Center on improving transition outcomes for students with disabilities in Greene County Schools.

Erik Carter of Vanderbilt University and Transition Tennessee made a presentation at the beginning of the meeting. He explained that Transition Tennessee is funded by the Tennessee Department of Education. Carter went on to say that the purpose of Transition Tennessee is to take the gifts and talents of students with disabilities and turn those into a career.

Carter said that students with disabilities want to have a good life after graduation.

The four questions that those in attendance discussed were:

*What is Greene County Schools already doing to prepare students with disabilities well for college, a career, and the community?

*What could Greene County Schools do better or differently to prepare students and families?

*How can Greene County Schools strengthen partnerships outside school to improve outcomes for students with disabilities?

*What are the most promising or exciting ideas you heard today?
