Adult Transition Program

Transition Students

Program Overview

CUSD provides an Adult Transition Program for young adults with disabilities aged 18-22 years of age. Eligibility is determined by the IEP team. The program provides training and instruction to facilitate the transition from public school into appropriate adult programs and supported work placements.

The emphasis within the transition program is to work toward a level of independence for each student. This is based upon the level of their disability, and needs the areas of living, working, and community involvement. Young adults in the program will be encouraged to make choices, participate in work experiences, interact with others in the community and strengthen their confidence level and social skills.

The program is located in the CUSD District Office and allows for opportunities for students to regularly interface with office staff when they are not in the community or at a job site. 

The program provides support in the transition domains listed below. The daily schedule of the program may include work experience, college classes, P.E., grocery shopping, eating out, and a variety of other activities.
