An emphasis on readiness for life after Concord includes individualized transition plans for all high school students. Transition services assist our students in preparing for the future. We strive to help our students understand their disabilities and learn self-advocacy skills.
We offer transition classes in grades 9 – 12, where students practice job and life skills, such as organization and interpersonal communication. Resume building, completing job applications, participating in mock interviews and internships, and planning for college are all part of the transition curriculum.
All high school students have a customized transition plan, developed as part of the ILP process, outlining their path to a post-secondary placement.
A transition coach facilitates each student’s transition experience, and guides them in skill-building, community-based learning, and other authentic activities that make them better prepared for Life After Concord.
