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.
