Transition Services

The Transition Services Coordinator is responsible for providing educational assistance to students with disabilities in the vocational technical education programs. The Coordinator is the link between the student with a disability, who is enrolled in a career and technical class, and their individual IEP case manager or 504 case manager. The Coordinator ensures the accommodations identified in the student's IEP or 504 plan are available. The Coordinator may also be a source of information for the parents regarding a student with a disability by:

  • Attending IEP and 504 meetings
  • Assisting students in appropriate class selection.
  • Serving as a liaison between the technical school and the sending schools to enhance communications and insure success to students.
  • Assisting vocational classroom instructors with curriculum modifications to enable students with disabilities to have an equal opportunity for success by describing accommodations and how they fit into the specific vocational courses.
  • Monitoring student progress in vocational classes on a regular basis (usually monthly) or at designated progress up-date times.
  • Describing accommodations and how they fit into the specific vocational courses.
  • Providing students with academic support relative to vocational courses

Please feel free to contact me for more information, for a tour of our programs, or for an individual meeting for prospective students and their parents.
