  • What is transition...

    Transition services are intended to prepare students to move from the world of school to the world of
    Transition planning considers students’:
    • Strengths
    • Needs
    • Abilities
    Transition addresses the following areas:
    • Employment
    • Education/Training
    • Independent Living Skills
    • Community Participation
    When does Transition planning begin?
    • Transition planning is mandated by state and federal law that each student in Special Education
    will have transition prior to their 14th birthday.
    • Spring ISD provides transition inventories, check lists, Career Cruising Plans, and ESTR assessment
    to identify student’s strengths, preferences, interests and needs.
    Why is Transition important?
    • Once a student exits the school system, all services are based on eligibility instead of
    entitlement (as are school services).
    • All services must be put in place by family, student and school staff to avoid a student from
    having a lack of opportunity to learn or work.
