Transition services are the bridge between school programs and oppurtunities in adult life. The entire process is based on the individual student’s needs, taking into account each student’s strengths, preferences, and interests. They help prepare students for post-secondary education, employment, and/or independent living goals.

12th grade students - Continue working on your scholarship packets.
Transition Co-Op Applications: If you are working on completing your application packet you can send them to me via email or hold on to them until we return to school. I will not be able to schedule co-op work expereinces for next school year until places of employment are back to normal (possibly over the summer or the beggining of the school year). You can include email recommendations from other teachers if you are working on your packet. Let me know if you have any questions.
If you are interested in Co-Op/ Work Expereince for the 2020-2021 school year, please check out possible work placements for below. I am always open to new suggestions too. Email me your preferences.
