Jerri Roach Ostergard Biography:

Jerri Roach Ostergard is the district wide Transition Specialist for the Worcester Public Schools. She has been working in the school system for the past 10 years, initially as a high school special education teacher. While working in a self-contained classroom with students with significant disabilities, Ms. Ostergard began to focus on supporting youth in more inclusive educational experiences. For the past 8 years, she has supported transition-age youth with intellectual disabilities using an individual support model to create access to inclusive postsecondary education and employment options. In particular, Ms. Ostergard has used her skills in person centered planning with youth to drive the development of the individual services and supports that they need to be successful in inclusive community-based opportunities. She has combined her background in special education with her knowledge of adult services to enable a smoother transition for youth as they move from high school to adulthood.
