What is a transition meeting?

Parent Question
Feb. 2, 2022Updated Mar. 17, 2022

Transition meetings, which are separate from the annual IEP meeting, are an opportunity for parents to address some of their concerns. One of the major questions the meeting will address is which school your child will attend. Districts usually recommend feeder schools, but you’ll want to do your homework on every option: what the facilities are like, the curriculum, where most of your child’s close peers are going.
