Effective July 1, 2018, District regulations require that the first IEP in effect after a child with a disability reaches 14 years of age include transition assessments and services. This introductory training will prepare special education teachers and leaders serving middle school students to develop high-quality, age-appropriate transition plans.

Participants will:

  • Understand the legal requirements and evidence-based practices for developing transition plans for middle school students
  • Demonstrate the ability to write age-appropriate, individualized postsecondary goals for middle school students
  • Demonstrate the ability to develop annual transition goals that are aligned with postsecondary goals
  • Identify age-appropriate transition services that align with postsecondary goals
  • Understand how to design a multi-year course of study that is appropriate for middle school students and aligns with postsecondary goals

This training was developed for special education teachers and leaders serving students in grades 6 through 9.
