Career and Transition Services Event for Parents and Educators

On Saturday, February 23, 2019, Career and Transition Services (CTS) along with several Fairfax County adult service providers and the FCPS Parent Resource Center, will host “Super Transition Saturday” from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at Luther Jackson Middle School.  This is a free event for parents and educators of students of all ages with IEPs.  Breakout sessions will cover postsecondary education support, the importance of student self-determination beginning in the elementary years, employment support programs, future planning considerations such as funding for needed services, and CTS support services that are available to students as they progress through the secondary years toward graduation and beyond.  A highlight of the day is a parent and student panel representing a range of challenges and successes.  Members of the panel will convey personal experiences and answer parent and student questions from their perspectives of having been through the transition process. The snow date will be March 9, 2019.
