Secondary Transition

Secondary transition planning is the process of preparing students for life after high school and includes planning for postsecondary education or training, employment and independent living.

For students with disabilities, Minnesota has specific requirements regarding evaluation and educational programming. Our guidance re: secondary transition due process is located on the Secondary Transition pages on the Case Manager Resources (CMR) website

Road Maps

The Transition Road Maps identify crucial tasks for specific age periods (14-16, 17-18, 19-21) during the transition years. In addition, they provide current information, contacts, and resource sheets. These “road maps” help students and their families to “drive their own car” through the transition years as effective self-advocates.


World's Best Workforce Plans

The World's Best Workforce (WBWF) is a plan that districts create annually to document steps they are taking to meet school readiness goals — including having all students attain career and college readiness before graduating from high school and having all students graduate from high school. Check out WBWF plans for each of our member districts.
