What is Transition?

Transition planning begins before age 14. Transition includes coordinating supports and services throughout grades K-12 and into adult life. The purpose of transition services is to help improve academic success and post-school outcomes.

Transition Includes:

  • Transition planning starts with the Individual Educational Plan (IEP) to be in effect when the student turns age 14.
  • Transition services are a part of the IEP, not a separate plan.
  • Transition planning involves the student, the family, school staff, agency staff and others identified by the IEP team.
  • Transition planning is not a one-time event.
  • The transition process continues until the student exits from the school system.
