Transition planning is the foundation for IEP planning process. The purpose of this document is to assist all stakeholders (students, teachers, families, and other school personnel) in developing and implementing the Transition IEP and transition planning throughout the secondary years.

Developed by the WISD Transition Coordinator, it categorizes age appropriate assessments based on three main variables; the domain topic area you are assessing (education/training, employment, and independent living), school age level of the student (middle school, high school, and post-high school), and disability.
Assessments included in the library have been either authentically created assessments in the form of downloadable files, are available to take online, or those of which will be offered for checkout through the WISD Transition Coordinator.
