Transition

What is transition?

Transition is planning for a student’s life after graduation.

Transition addresses the life domains of:

  • Employment
  • Post-secondary education and learning options
  • Independent living skills
  • Recreation/leisure activities

 Transition involves the student through interviews; inventories and having the student attend ARD/IEP meetings once he/she is 14.  A student’s IEP must address transition by age 14.

 When does transition planning begin?

Transition planning must begin on or before a students’ 14th birthday as mandated by state and federal policy.

Brownfield ISD conducts transition inventories, check lists, and visual transitional plans to identify student’s strengths, preferences, interests, and needs. 

 

What to consider in transition planning?

When will the student graduate?  Students receiving special education services may stay in school until they are 21 if so desired. 

 

Under what plan will the student graduate?

  • Foundation
  • Foundation + Endorsement
  • IEP Completion –age out

 Will the student attend college, a trade school, or community programs? 

Will the student work and what resources will be needed to support successful employment?

What will the student do for recreation and social interaction?

What financial and personal supports will be needed?

What transportation services will the student need?
