Post High School provides a coordinated set of activities based on individual student needs that help facilitate movement toward post-secondary goals to include:
- Career/Employment Development
- Post-School Adult Living
- Community Experiences
- IEP Related Services (Speech, OT, PT, etc.)
As students attend and get closer to their exit date we will modify their schedules and they will be phased out of the Post High program and into the program or life situation that will best serve them. We are looking for a seamless Transition into adult life.
WHAT IS TRANSITION?
Transition is the process of moving from high school or post high school to being an adult member of the community. Transition planning takes place during the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process. This is the time when planning takes place for life after high school with the IEP team. This process is also a wonderful opportunity for the IEP team to gather information about the student’s skills and interests. Students can participate in career awareness, career exploration, work experience, school-to-career programs, community-based instruction and high school classes. The information from these experiences will provide the IEP team with the data needed to develop transition services.
WHEN DOES TRANSITION PLANNING BEGIN?
Transition planning should begin by age 14 or earlier, if needed. This is the time during the IEP to decide on the type of courses, academic or vocational, that will help the student prepare for the future. The Transition Plan in the IEP will describe instruction, community experiences, employment activities, adult living, and related services that will help the student achieve goals after high school.
