Transition and College, Career

& Military Readiness

 

Dear San Antonio ISD Parents, Families, and Students,

San Antonio ISD is committed to facilitating transition planning and the delivery of transition services for our students.

Transition is best defined as a coordinated set of activities that are based on the student's individual needs.  These activities can take place in a variety of ways which will always be focused on allowing the student to progress toward meeting their post-secondary goal.

Please explore the links to resources found on this webpage.

Feel free to contact your student’s Special Education case manager or your high school feeder’s Transition Specialist for further information.
