Introduction to Secondary Transition for Middle Schools

Next Date: 
Repeats every week 1 times. Also includes Mon Mar 13 2017, Fri Apr 07 2017.

810 First St. NE Washington, DC 20002
Third Floor, Grand Hall

Middle school educators, administrators, and related service providers play an important role in preparing students with disabilities to gain the skills they will need to succeed in high school and in life. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires IEP teams to develop a transition plan that contains postsecondary goals in the areas of education, employment, and independent living (when appropriate) for all students with disabilities ages 16 and older.

Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, IEP teams will be required to develop transition plans for students aged 14 and older based on requirements set forth by the Enhanced Special Education Services Amendment Act of 2014 passed by DC Council.

This half day training session will introduce practitioners to the IDEA’s secondary transition planning requirements and share ways in which middle schools can prepare students to actively engage in the transition planning process, including participation in career awareness and exploration activities and age-appropriate transition assessments that will guide IEP teams in selecting transition goals, services, and activities.

These sessions will be held at OSSE, Third Floor Grand Hall, from 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m. Participants my sign up for one of the three sessions offered:

  • Monday, March 6, 2017
  • Monday, March 13, 2017
  • Friday, April 7, 2017
