• Directions and Key Reminders

    The Transition Portfolio was developed as a resource for teachers to document activities the students complete toward their post-secondary goals. To develop a meaningful transition plan, each portfolio should be individualized with activities that address steps toward the student’s future goals for education, training, employment and community participation.

    • Students and parents should be involved in the selection of activities.
    • It is expected that students complete more than just the required/suggested activities at each grade level in order to be most effective.
    • The Transition Portfolio is to be used at all IEP meetings and any other meeting where student progress or programming is discussed.
    • Activities may either be completed independently or with support.
    • Activities in bold print are strongly recommended.
    • The portfolio follows the student from school to school.
    • Activities should be built upon one another toward a final product.
    • The students’ portfolios go with them when they graduate or exit school along with other important documentation.
