  • Funded by the Commonwealth since 2007, the Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment Initiative offers grant funded programs supporting public high school students with severe disabilities, ages 18-22, who have not passed MCAS the opportunity to participate in inclusive college courses (credit or non-credit) to increase their school and work success.  Preliminary research shows that students benefit academically and transition to young adulthood more readily when they have the opportunity to engage in all college-related activities (e.g., establishing new social networks, participating in campus-wide events, learning to use public transportation to and from campus, completing course assignments, obtaining employment) rather than staying at high school. Student participation in this grant program may be incorporated into a student’s transition program, as determined through the school district’s special education process. Grant activities include transition support to student participants and their families. In addition, public high school personnel involved in the grant program gain valuable knowledge about promising inclusive practices through technical assistance and trainings.
