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’:
Transition addresses the following areas:
- 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.
