The present study was carried out to draw attention on the management of school collaboration in implementing life skills education for students with disabilities. This is because the resources possessed by educational institutions are very limited, thus the synergy of school with the community becomes an undeniable matter. In sum, research and development in the current project uses what has been developed by Borg and Gall. Data collection is done through document analysis, observation and in-depth interviews with special needs schools, companies and parents of students with disabilities. The model validation was carried out through a Focus Group Discussion involving several special needs schools in Subang; SLBN Subang, Waliwis Putih and SLB Trituna, PT Subang Autocomp Indonesia, Manpower and Transmigration Office, Education Office, and home industry owners. As well, limited testing of model feasibility was applied to two special schools in Subang namely SLB Waliwis Putih and SLB Trituna. The findings disclosed that the management of school collaboration in implementing life skills education for students with disabilities was compiled through planning, actuating and evaluation in various educational activities involving schools, business or industry and society. Based on results obtained in this line of research, it can be concluded that the implementation of life skills education for students with special needs has met the criteria of success in promoting synergistic cooperation among the school, business or industry and society.
