- Develop leadership capacity by providing support and training around technical and adaptive change so that LEAs know the conditions under which effective teaching and learning happen.
- Develop collaborative relationships so that LEAs' efforts to promote academic, career, and community-based opportunities for students with disabilities are coordinated and aligned.
