The Special Education Administrator, Department Chair, Case Manager, school psychologist, counselor, educators, parents,students and community agencies coordinate to develop individual education/transition plans. These plans are the product of ongoing collaboration among teachers, students, parents and community agencies. The plan reflects students’ achievements and goals. The IEP/ITP team will determine classes & programs that best prepare students for transition into adulthood; giving consideration to Advanced Placement courses, General Education, Vocational Education Training, Community Experience, Employment Objective, Post-School/Adult Living Skills, and Daily Living Skills.
