~~“Transitioning from High School to Post-School Activities
At the annual PPT meeting following your child’s fifteenth birthday (or younger, if determined appropriate) you will begin to discuss transition planning from school to adult life. Your child must be invited to this PPT meeting, and all subsequent PPT meetings until he/she either graduates from high school with a regular diploma or until the end of the school year in which he or she turns 21.
At the same PPT, your child’s IEP will be planned and must include:
•Appropriate measurable postsecondary goals based upon age-appropriate transition assessments related to training, education, employment and, where appropriate, independent living skills; and
• The transition services needed to assist the child in reaching those goals.”
