Transition planning is helping students with disabilities and their families think about their lives after high school and identify long-range goals and designing the high school experience to ensure that students gain the skills and connections they need to achieve these goals.
The Texas Education Agency, in collaboration with Statewide Leadership in Secondary Transition and Post School Results at Education Service Center Region, are pleased to announce that the Texas Transition and Employment Guide has been posted to the Transition in Texas Website.
