Transition services are a coordinated set of activities that focus on activities or courses of study available in high school that will facilitate students' movement toward their post-high school goals. IDEA 2004 requires that a student’s IEP must address transition when the child turns 14. The ARD committee should develop measurable goals based on appropriate assessment in the areas of training, education, employment and when appropriate, independent living.

Our goal at WISD is to offer individual transition services to create opportunities for successful futures and post-school outcomes. WISD offers a continuum of services for 18 plus students once they have completed required credits toward graduation, including Elevate, Global 18 Plus, and WHS 18 Plus. 18 plus programs assist eligible students in their acquisition of employability and related self-help skills in order to meet their post-secondary goals
