Transition is the process of preparing students for successful adult living after high school. The area s may include: participation in post-secondary education, training, employment and military service. It is the goal of this service to ensure all students become responsible and productive citizens. These areas are often referred to as “post-school outcomes” and are the driving force behind the IEP written for students in high school. Transition planning can begin in middle or early high school as students explore potential career opportunities and awareness. Transition services continue through high school. During the course of transition planning, families are provided with information about community agencies such as the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Office of Mental Health/Mental Retardation. These agencies and others, may be able to assist students after graduation.
