Transition planning is an outcome-oriented process that is formalized in the IEP at age 14, and continues through graduation. Transition services include specific planning in school to help prepare students with disabilities to participate more effectively in:
- Higher education or job training
- Community participation
- Independent living
- Continuing and adult education
- Employment when the student leaves school
A special education student may stay in school until he or she earns a high school diploma or ages out of the program.
