Oklahoma’s Transition Education Handbook


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Policies and Programs

“Oklahoma’s special education policies and procedures ensure that all students with an IEP have access to a free appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepares students with IEPs for employment, further education, and independent living. Desired employment, further education, and independent living outcomes become the postsecondary goals that drive the transition planning process and the secondary IEP.

The transition planning process provides opportunities for the young adult with disabilities to ponder and identify post-school goals. Transition planning provides educators the opportunity to structure the IEP transition components to facilitate attainment of students’ post-school goals.”
