Grant Continues KSC Partnership with Community

From Betsy Street, Monadnock Center for Successful Transitions: Keene State College has been awarded a $52,881 grant that will allow the College to continue working with Monadnock Developmental Services (MDS) and participate in the Granite State Employment Project (GSEP). The Monadnock Center for Successful Transitions (MCST), under the leadership of Steve Bigaj, assistant dean of Professional and Graduate Studies, will be developing professional development tools and teacher resources to assist educators statewide in supporting the transition of students with disabilities to postsecondary life. Target areas include transition-oriented IEPs, Federal compliance, work-based learning experiences, and coordination of the local Transition Community of Practice. In addition, development is underway for an employment-focused summer residential camp for high school students with learning disabilities at Keene State next summer. Funding for this project comes from the Department of Health and Human Services, Medicaid Infrastructure Grant (MIG).
