  • What is Transition? 
     
    All students leave school at some point to establish their adult lives.  Transition refers to the critical information needed for our students with special needs to achieve their adult goals.  This information includes: education, legal information, planning, and community connections. 
     
    The transition process prepares students with disabilities for adult life by focusing on these specific areas: post-secondary education, employment, community participation and when appropriate, independent living skills. 
     
    When does Transition Planning Begin? 
     
    Federal rules and regulations state that transition planning for students with disabilities must begin no later than the first IEP to be in effect when the child turns 16 and updated annually thereafter.
