The transition from high school to the real world can be a difficult and stressful time for many students—especially those graduating from special education and community school settings. Dozens of students attending Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) programs participated today in a transition fair to learn about services available to them once they leave high school.
Representatives from 10 organizations visited the Leo A. Palmiter Jr./Sr. High School campus for the 13th Annual Transition Resource Fair, offering information and support to students. The services they highlighted ranged from education and training to job placement and housing programs.
Transition planning helps students prepare for life after high school graduation. The process can include preparing for post-secondary education, vocational training, supported employment, continuing and adult education, independent living, and community participation.
SCOE’s annual transition fair promotes advocacy and helps students identify the many, varied opportunities available to them after high school. The event, organized by SCOE's WorkAbility Program, brings agencies into the school setting for easy access for students, parents, guardians, and teachers.
