Secondary transition is the process of preparing students for life after they leave high school. We believe that secondary transition planning begins in Pre-K and continues until a student exits high school. Areas that must be addressed include participation in post-secondary education or training, employment, and community living. These three areas are often referred to as “post-secondary outcomes” and are the driving force behind Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) written for students in high school.
