Transition Services

Transition is the process of helping students plan for life after high school. It's a collaborative effort between students, parents, school personnel, agency representatives, and community services working together to address student's needs, interests, and abilities. Transition planning is required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. It's an on-going process that begins with the identification of a disability and is formalized at age fourteen.
