What is Transition?

 
The Transition Program is an optional program for young adults with special needs who are 18 - 21 years of age and who have completed their high school core classes and when IEP team have determined the need for such transition services.
 
Transition is the process students and their families use to develop desired outcomes after high school.  Transition assists with developing necessary tools to progress from high school to adult life.
 
Transition may look very different from individual to individual.  Services are provided through a "team model" approach of educational professionals, student, parents, and community resources.
 
Experiences and opportunities are offered to ensure that students will be able to obtain individual goals and acquire the knowledge and skills needed to access appropriate community resources and agencies.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
