What is the Transition Program?
Transition Services include those services provided by Menomonee Falls Public Schools’ Special Education Department designed to prepare and support students with disabilities through the transition process. Outcomes may include, but are not limited to: Self-determination, self-advocacy, vocational training, employment, recreation & leisure, post-secondary education and independent living.
To provide the highest quality in transition support services to students with disabilities, with a focus on developing each student’s skills, understanding of preferences, interests, and developing self-determination, self-advocacy skills necessary for successfully achieving their post-secondary goals.
Engage and empower students with disabilities, to achieve their full potential. At the same time, the greater community will become engaged in finding ways to provide meaningful opportunities for students to achieve their life’s goals. It is in influencing these critical connections--between students, the school, support systems, and community--the mission will be achieved.
