The Transition Resource Guide has been developed to assist staff, parents and students with the transition from high school to adulthood. Helping students match abilities and interests, promoting strengths and recognizing weaknesses, and by identifying successive steps to achieve long-term goals, students will gain the knowledge, skills, self-reliance, and self-esteem necessary for success. The guide contains general information, resources and checklists that teachers, parents and students can use to assist IEP teams to a successful outcome to the specific path chosen. The guide can be used each year of high school based on four particular paths a student may follow. The four paths include Supported Employment, Competitive Employment, Military, and Post Secondary Education. Staff is encouraged to utilize the guide as it applies to the individualized transition needs of the students.
