Secondary Transition

  • Secondary Transition is the process of preparing students with disabilities for life after they leave high school, including participation in post-secondary education or training, employment, and community/independent living. These three areas are often referred to as “post-secondary outcomes” and are the driving force behind Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) written for students 14 years of age and older.  The planning process is a collaborative effort between the student, family/caregiver, school team, and agency partners.
