Transition is the process of preparing students for life after they leave high school,
    including participation in post-secondary education or training, employment, and
    community living. 



    Transition services under IDEA are a coordinated set of activities

    that are designed as a results oriented process

    that promotes movement from school to post-school activities,

    including post-secondary education, vocational training,

    integrated services, independent living, or community participation

    based on the individual student’s needs, taking into account the

    student’s preference and interests and includes the following:

    instruction, related services, community experiences, development

    of employment and other post-school adult living objectives, and

    acquisition of daily living skills and functional vocational evaluation.

    Transition Center
     The Denton ISD Transition Center seeks to provide services for young adults ages 18 to 21
    as they progress from an educational setting towards living and working as independently
    as possible in the community.  Students will address life skills goals through individual
    and community-based interactions, which lead to the acquisition of work skills, independent
    living skills and vocational-based experiences.
