Administrator Discussion: Transition to Adulthood

The transition to adulthood and the transition from the Needham school district to adult agencies is a complex one that starts with very early planning which includes a comprehensive transition plan beginning at age 14. Ilene Asarch, a transition specialist who works at Needham High School running the post-graduate program, will join us to discuss key considerations for planning for transition.

In addition, we will get updates from administrators about standardized testing and next year's school budget.

Parent Conversation: Supporting After-school Activities and IEP Checklist for Transition to a New School

We will continue our conversation on ways to support children in after-school activities. We will also work to develop a checklist of transition topics to discuss when a student is moving to a new building (entering kindergarten/High Rock/Pollard/HS), e.g. transportation, supplies, lunchroom seating.
