Transition Program

Transition Program Mission Statement

We believe that students (18-21) who access transition services should have a variety of educational experiences, job related training, technological skill development, functional skill development, and access to community resources/agencies, which will allow them to develop the skill necessary to live more independently and become participating members within our community.

Transition Services are…..

  • individualized and based on the student post-secondary school goals outlined in the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP)
  • designed to build skills necessary to attain post-secondary school goals
  • designed to bridge school-based services to community services
