Transition Program


transition program

Our transition program prepares Concord students for success after high school.

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.

Transition Plans

All high school students have a customized transition plan, developed as part of the IEP process, outlining how they will explore their own path to a post-secondary placement.

Transition Classes

All high school students take a transition class each year, focusing on skills appropriate to their age and abilities that will facilitate their transition to life after high school.
