A report summarizing the first National Leadership Summit on Improving Results for Youth. More than 250 state agency leaders, policymakers, and professionals representing general education, special education, career and technical education, workforce development, vocational rehabilitation, and other agencies participated. Parents and youth with disabilities also participated on several of the state teams. Teams representing 42 States and other entities, including the Pacific Rim territories, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Bureau of Indian Affairs, attended. The purpose of the two-day event was to build state capacity to develop more results-driven state systems so that youth with disabilities achieve more desirable postschool outcomes. The Summit format was built around the work of state teams rather than individuals which allowed states to harness and channel the collective expertise of a diverse team of stakeholders within each state.
