Transition services are defined by IDEA as a coordinated set of activities for a student, designated within an outcome-oriented process, to promote movement from school to post-school activities including: post-secondary education/training, employment, and community living (residential, participation, and recreation/leisure). These activities are based on the individual needs of each student, taking into consideration his/her preferences and interests. IEP goals and objectives may address Instruction and Related Services, Community Experiences, Acquisition of Daily Living Skills, Functional Vocational Evaluation, and Adult Living. Students with disabilities have equal access to career education services, including a career assessment which occurs by 9th grade. That data will assist the IEP team in appropriate transition planning.
