What is Transition?
In GUHSD, transition is the adult (18 – 22) support network designed to provide agreed upon services through the IEP process. We are committed to supporting students to access integrated, age-appropriate community activities that will promote a seamless transition to each student’s preferred adult life. Students are encouraged to be as independent as possible in the community, at their vocation internships, and at school through the development of the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) including the Transition Plan (TP). Supports are identified to facilitate life goals
