Teaming for Transition: Preparing Students for Postsecondary Life
Rebekah Fuss and Betty Lopez, Selah School District
Planning for students’ transition needs requires a coordinated approach between IEP team members. Our district has embarked on a journey to make this a smooth process that addresses students’ transition needs at the high school level and through specific programming for some students ages 18-21. Coordination with community partners, connections with outside agencies, and careful scheduling of instruction are all aspects of our teams’ work to build transition supports for all students.
