Transition in Granite School District
April 25 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Have you wondered what is in store for your child when they leave the school system? This is an important question for all parents, especially parents of children with disabilities. Despite your child’s disability, it is never too early to start planning for the future. Transition planning starts at the age of 14 in Utah. What does that mean for your child? A transition plan includes two long range goals/outcomes in education/training and employment. Independent living is optional but highly encouraged by our school teams. Student’s strengths, preferences, and interests need to be taken into consideration when creating the plan. The plan should improve the functional and academic achievement of the individual as they move from school to post-school activities. Planning for the future allows parents time to identify concerns and explore opportunities to help their youth achieve their goals as they approach adulthood. This workshop will include a Q & A session with the Director of Special Education in Granite School District, Bryce Day.
