Shrewsbury Transition Resources

Welcome to the Shrewsbury Public Schools Transition Resources Website

Transition Planning is the process of
preparing youth with disabilities
to move from school to adult life

Using this Website

This website is designed to help students and family members navigate the transition planning process. Youth with disabilities often face unique challenges as they prepare for life after school. Understanding the options, resources, and supports that are available can be overwhelming.

In Massachusetts Public Schools, the transition planning process begins when a student turns 14. As the student gets closer to graduation, their IEP Team will consider how to prepare them for a successful adult life. Considerations include:

  • Job Training
  • Post-Secondary Education
  • Employment
  • Independent Living Skills
Just as every student's abilities and interests are unique, every student's transition plan will be different. This site includes resources that will help with the transition planning process and answer many of the questions that families and students commonly ask.

We invite you to explore the site and learn more about the transition planning process. If you are a parent or guardian of a student with a disability, we encourage you to discuss these topics with your child's special education liaison. Please contact the website administrators regarding site-specific content.
