County Communities on Transition

A County Community on Transition (CCoT) is a group of stakeholders who have made the commitment to collaborate around identifying barriers to transition planning, to organize the supports needed and to develop solutions for youth with disabilities in the local county they serve.  The CCoT creates their own vision and mission as it relates to transition in their community.  This partnership is essential to assist in the pathways for youth to explore employment, training and postsecondary education, and engage in skills to be independent in their home and community while building self-advocacy skills.  Suggested CCoT members include but are not limited to:

  • School Districts
  • Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Aging and Disability Resource Center
  • Adult Long-Term Care Organization
  • Children’s Long-Term Support
  • Higher Education
  • Youth
  • Family Members and/or Guardians
  • Business Members
  • Transition Stakeholders that provide services to youth with disabilities. 

The key to CCoT success is sharing the work as a local county, establishing effective communication practices and creating new relationships to better work together and increase collaboration.  Each CCoT is unique and has its own history of providing opportunities in their county by way of transition events to benefit the students and families they serve.

The County Community on Transition (CCoT) Toolkit was created by the Transition Improvement Grant (TIG), under the direction of the Wisconsin Community on Transition (WiCoT) to help guide CCoTs through the process of developing, implementing, and maintaining a strong team to support success for students with disabilities.  

This toolkit is one of three next steps to support CCoT’s in the WiCoT Action Plan to address the needs of the CCoT’s around the state.  The WiCoT Action Plan was created based on the 2019-2020 CCoT Survey completed by all 72 CCoT’s around the state. 

This toolkit provides tools and resources that CCoTs can use whether they are just starting or have been active for many years.  The tools and resources can assist in building the foundations of the CCoT team, facilitating the work, using data to support growth, and maintaining communication.
