Special Education Transition Project
The ESC Region 19 Transition program serves parents, families and educators by offering resources and training on federal and state guidelines for transition services. Staff development and technical assistance are available to support districts, charters, families, and community agencies in achieving student success as the students move towards high school graduation and beyond.
When students graduate from high school, they often face a future that has more questions than answers. For students with disabilities, the future can be even more uncertain. Transition planning is a process that prepares students with disabilities and their families for that transition from the public school to adulthood.
