Federal Regulation (IDEA):
State Board Rule:​

Transition is the movement from school to post school environments. It should include the skills necessary for the student to be successful in education, employment, and independent living after completion of high school. The student should be involved in the process and decisions for their future and schools should assist students to build student’s self-determination skills to reach their goals.

Below are links to resources for administrators, teachers and support staff to provide for a meaningful transition for all students with disabilities. Should you have questions and/or concerns about transition, please contact the Program Specialist listed in the contacts.
