We hope you are coming back from a restful and rejuvenating summer!
As we return to school, there are lots of variables that will influence how this school year emerges. We know you have the skills, passion, and drive to make it a good year for everyone.
Although there will be many changes occurring upon our return, there are some constants that prevail, especially in the predictors of post-school success for students with disabilities. This newsletter includes details about those predictors and reminders about this year's Post-School Survey.
The CCTS team is here to provide support and guidance throughout the school year. Please reach out if we can be of assistance!
