Implementing a robust, well-designed transition plan is important for all students. We also need to pay particular attention to students who may need additional supports and interventions during this critical time period to ensure success throughout the transition. As such, school teams incorporate these supported transitions in the context of their overall plan. Some students may need additional communication and planning to continue support and few students may need intensive planning and communication among key stakeholders to ensure a successful transition. These specialized transition practices are outlined in the following guidance documents for some and few students, depending on level of needed support.
