Student Focused Planning

IEP Development

The process of planning occurs at the Individualized Education Planning Team (IEPT) meeting.  This process will be coordinated by the school system.

Transition works best when the student, parents, family, school, and agencies all work together.

What does this mean for the student?
You, your family members, your school, and community agencies are involved in your IEP/Transition Meeting

Student Participation-This is your Future !
