What's Trending in Transition

October 2019
A group of seven elementary aged students is laying on the floor resting their elbows on their chins while they smile at the camera.
Check out some of our favorite transition tools.
Two of the tools that we would like to feature this month are from Texas OnCourse . Texas OnCourse is a college and career resource website that is a project of the University of Texas at Austin in partnership with the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and the Texas Workforce Commission.
Texas OnCourse Academy
This tool provides comprehensive professional learning on college and career advising for all educators – including counselors, advisers, teachers, coaches, and anyone else who supports students in their plans for after high school. Be sure to check out the module on Transition Services for Students with Disabilities !
The Family Guide
This is a practical guide for parents and guardians of middle school students to consult before their students start high school. Students and families will find more information to help plan next steps for high school courses, colleges, careers, and graduation.
Should the Transition and Employment Guide be posted on the district or charter school website?
Yes, the Transition and Employment Guide must be posted on your district or charter website, unless your district or charter does not have a website. The district or charter should decide where to post the guide on the website.

The website address for your district or charter's web page that features the Transition and Employment Guide should be updated on the Legal Framework Transition and Employment Services Designee Search. Be sure to check your Transition and Employment Designee contact information and website link to the Transition and Employment Guide for accuracy. If this information has changed, it must be updated in the Legal Framework by October 31, 2019.

Remember that the Transition and Employment Guide is available in English, Spanish, and as an accessible ePub document. If you have the most current version (July 2018) of the Transition and Employment Guide posted on your website, it will contain links to all three versions.
