What is Transition?

Students with disabilities transition throughout their school careers—from grade to grade, early childhood programs to elementary, elementary to middle, middle to high school and high school to college and/or employment.

The goal of Transition Services is to provide support to students, family and staff through the transition process. The focus of transition is to increase the possibilities for our students to lead successful, meaningful lives after high school graduation.

When it comes to the IEP, however, “transition” addresses a specific life stage and puts a plan in place for how your child will make that move.  Transition in the IEP helps your child move from public school to adult life.
