Madison Metropolitan School District’s vision for all students - that they will graduate career, college, and community ready - requires that there is a cohesive continuum of supports that extends from early education through the student’s experience in high school. As students move across and through key levels of schooling within their education, our transitions practices play an important role to support students as they gain skills, abilities, and knowledge to be confident problem-solvers with a growth mindset that will enable them to be global citizens.

This toolkit is organized into tabs based on the main strategies that support transition, according to research and best practice. Each tab includes basic information, and a table of links/resources that can be used to support student transitions.

For more information about transitions within MMSD and best practices to support successful transitions, please read the Transitions Guidance Document.
