As we move into the New Year, students will have IEP meetings to discuss progress and plan for the following school year. Consider students post high school aspirations as planning begins for courses and IEP goals. Beginning with the end in mind, allows IEP teams the benefit of planning a course of study that is relevant to a student’s post high school aspirations. Familiarize yourself with the Transition Plan. This part of the IEP is where students post high school goals and supports are discussed. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to communicate with your child's case manager.
