From an Everett Public Schools news release.
The University of Washington Bothell honored more than 75 of its community partners who attended a recognition luncheon with University faculty and staff June 8, 2017, at the North Creek Events Center.
Rebecca Clifford, Everett Public Schools special services executive director, was acknowledged for her co-research focusing on secondary transition planning and services.
Clifford collaborated with Dr. Jason Naranjo, UW Bothell School of Educational Studies lead faculty, Inclusive Special Education.
“Partnering with businesses and organizations provides a transformational learning experience for UW Bothell students, creates opportunities for faculty research and also upholds our public mission as a state institution,” said Kara Adams, UW Bothell director of community engagement.
Everett Public Schools has an active program helping disabled students transition from their secondary education to adult life.
The March Snohomish County Transition Fair was an example of the program’s outreach to young adults and families, helping each individual to pursue career goals and become an active participant in their community.
