Transition services refer to a coordinated set of activities for a student with a disability. These activities are designed to improve academic and functional achievement and to facilitate the student’s transition from school to post-school activities. These activities address how the school will prepare the students for life after high school in the areas of training or education, employment, and independent living (if applicable).
Transition services for ESS students in EBR Parish Schools are required to be addressed through the student’s IEP when the student is 15 years of age or older at the time of the IEP meeting. The purpose of the plan is to provide a coordinated effort between the student, parent, school, and adult service providers to achieve a desired outcome and to plan their community and school experiences to assure that the student acquire the knowledge and skills to achieve their goals.
