Transition Services

Post-Secondary Transition

Planning and preparing for your future can be exciting!  For students with disabilities and their families, this task can be overwhelming, yet is one of the most important activities that must be done to ensure a successful future. In Ohio, transition planning begins when a student with a disability is 14 years of age or earlier if needed.

Big Walnut Local Schools focuses on integrating students with disabilities into their school and community by providing a variety of opportunities that support individual needs, interests and strengths. Transition services are coordinated by IEP team members to assist families and students in developing a transition plan that will move students toward their post-secondary education, employment and independent living/community integration goals. 

Transition services include:
  • Agency referral assistance
  • Career & technical education exploration
  • Consultative services for future planning
  • Post-secondary programming exploration
  • School & community based internship opportunities
