Transition Legal Reference

Secondary Transition or “transition services” as defined by The Individuals with Disabilities Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004) is a coordinated set of activities for a student with a disability that:

  • Is designed to be within a results-oriented process, that is focused on improving the academic and functional achievement of the student with a disability to facilitate the student’s movement from school to post-school activities, including postsecondary education, vocational education, integrated employment (including supported employment); continuing and adult education, adult services, independent living, or community participation;
  • Is based on the individual student’s needs, taking into account the student’s strengths, preferences, and interests; and
  • Includes instruction, related services, community experiences, the development of employment and other post-school adult living objectives, and, if appropriate, acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation [34CFR §300.43]

Region 14 provides technical assistance and professional development opportunities to school districts and charter schools that are designed to meet federal, state, and local transition requirements.
