Penns Manor Area School District Where Bright Futures Begin


Transition Planning

Secondary transition is the process of preparing students for life after they leave high school, including participation in post-secondary education or training, employment, and community living. These three areas are often referred to as "post-school outcomes" and are the driving force behind Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) written for students in high school. Transition planning begins at age 14, in middle school or early high school, as students explore what they want their post-school outcomes to be.  Transition planning involves a partnership between the student, the family, school-age services and program providers, post-school services and program providers, and local community members. There are many agencies that may be able to provide services to you and your child.


Office of Vocational Rehabilitation

Offers assistance to students and parents for transition planning.  Supports include: post-secondary training, employment, address special needs, barriers to competitive employment, and facilitate/develop Individual Plans for Employment or IPEs.
