Transition Information

What is Transition Planning? 

Transition planning is a partnership involving students with disabilities, their families, school personnel, local community and adult service representatives, as well as employers. The purpose of transition planning is equip students with necessary skills to enter into adulthood. The transition plan drives the student’s and focuses both on present and future needs of the student. Planning for the future should help the IEP team design instructional programs that reflect the student’s interest and needs for life as an adult in the areas of employment, postsecondary education and independent living.

What the Law says about Transition - IDEA 2004

Every eligible student is required to have a transition plan that includes appropriate measurable postsecondary goals based upon age appropriate transition assessments related to training, education, employment, and, where appropriate, independent living skills and a statement of needed transition services (including a course of study) incorporated into his or her Individualized Education Program (IEP) no later than age 16 (or younger, if determined appropriate by the IEP team).
