Transition services are designed to assist students in making a successful change from secondary to post-secondary life. Our student-centered approach gives students the support they need to achieve their post-secondary goals. Transition planning begins at admission.
Through courses such as Social Dynamics, Health, Career Education, and Group, students learn the skills necessary to regulate their emotions, work successfully with others, make healthy life choices and create plans to reach their goals.
As students move through middle and high school, they develop an individual transition plan that focuses on post-secondary education, career and independent living goals. These goals are based on a yearly student-completed transition assessment.
Once interests are identified and goals are created, students may participate in the following programs to help support their success:
- Community-based instruction
- School-based enterprises
- College visits and planning
- Dual-enrollment programs
- Job fairs
- Employability skills training
- Pre-vocational training programs
- School-to-work programs based on employment experiences
- Self-determination and self-advocacy training
- Social skills training
