Courses of Study refer to the list of academic courses (classes) that the student will complete each year that support the achievement of his/her individual post-secondary goals.
Courses of study:

  • Focus on improving academic and functional achievement to support post-school goals.
  • Facilitate movement from school to post school by aligning curriculum with identified transition outcomes.
  • Should promote graduation by meeting district standards.
  • Combined from first year to final year of transition planning = coordinated set of activities.

Transition Services and Activities are action steps that the student will complete each year, which support the achievement of his/her individual post-secondary goals. The person(s)/agency responsible are those key educational staff, agencies, persons, etc. that support each service or activity.

  • Transition Services include instruction to address identified needs or skill deficits in areas such as reading, math, organization, social, adaptive living, or work-related skills. Each post-secondary goal area must include at least one service that is linked to a measurable annual goal.
  • Transition Activities are activities to be completed during the course of the IEP year, but do not require a measurable annual goal. Examples include exploring options for post-secondary education, developing a resume, practicing interview skills, exploring employment opportunities, attending a college or employment fair, exploring housing opportunities, registering to vote, etc. Occur during the current IEP.
  • Transition Service and Activities can occur both in school and in the community.
    Combined from first year to final year of transition planning = coordinated set of activities.
