18+ Transition Program

The LVISD 18 Plus Transition program is a program for students between the ages of 18 and 21 and serves as a bridge between high school and adult living.  The mission of the program is to provide transition services through collaborative partnerships that guide students through individualized pathways, promoting lifelong learning as contributing members of their community.




What is Transition?
Transition is planning for a student’s life after graduation.   Transition planning and instruction address the life domains of:
  • Employment
  • Post secondary education and learning options
  • Independent living skills
  • Recreation/ leisure activities

Program Information

Students eligible for the 18 Plus Transition Program have completed all of their academic credits required for graduation and have been given the opportunity to participate in graduation ceremonies with their age appropriate peers. Consideration for this program is based on personalized assessment.  Students who enter the program receive a certificate of completion at the end of high school. Upon exiting the 18 Plus Transition Program, students receive a Regular High School Diploma.

Hours of support are individually determined, resulting in the student attaining employment, developing street safety skills, volunteering, and accessing community resources. Instructional activities are developed based on person-centered planning and reflect transitional outcomes leading to employment. Instruction is community focused, occurring   at places such as job sites, public transportation, local businesses, recreation centers, and community organization and service sites. Instruction emphasizes skills that support  independence and employment, such as  communication, socialization, personal management, vocational skills, functional math, and functional language arts.
