Secondary Transition Guide

Your transition from school to adult life is an important series of steps.
To help you map out this process, the Bureau of Special Education has developed a website for you, your family and school. The name of the website is “Secondary Transition Guide.” The address for the website is www.secondarytransition.org. The website is organized by topics. The topics cover key areas of your secondary transition, including postsecondary education and training, employment and community living. Some of the information on the website suggests important subjects and activities for you to think about, based on your age. The website also has links to other Pennsylvania Agencies and Departments that can help support your transition. You can access the website any time and look for information when it’s important to you. If you cannot access the website, you can request a CD or printed copy of the website’s core documents, available in either English or Spanish, by contacting your school or by calling the Pennsylvania Training & Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN) at 800-446-5607.

Family Engagement: LEA to LEA Webinar Series
All families want the best for their children. In fact, “parents express a genuine and deep-seated desire to help their children succeed academically, regardless of differences in socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, and cultural background (Mapp, 2004).” Providing families with opportunities to become partners in their children’s learning takes commitment and planning from both educators and families. During these hour-long webinars, members of Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) throughout Pennsylvania, along with PaTTAN educational consultants, will share current practices and strategies for other LEAs to consider as a means to effectively engage families to support student learning. LEAs will share their rationale as well as the effects of their practices. This webinar series is designed for school administrators, teachers, and others interested in learning how Pennsylvania leaders are engaging families to effect student learning. Hear of their successes, creative ideas, challenges, and results.

Pennsylvania Parent Guide To Special Education For School Age Children

Parents are very important participants in the special education process. 

They know their child better than anyone else and have valuable information to contribute about the kinds of programs and services that are needed for their child’s success in school. To ensure the rights of children with a disability, additional laws have been made. In this guide we also use the term “rules.” Sometimes these rules can be confusing to parents. They may be written in language that is difficult to understand. This booklet has been written to explain these rules so parents will feel comfortable and can better participate in the educational decision-making process for their child. The chapters that follow address questions that parents may have about special education as it relates to their child who is thought to have, or may have, a disability.

Chapter One focuses on how a child’s need for special education is determined. 

Chapter Two explains how a special education program plan is developed and the kinds of information it must include. 

Chapter Three deals with the responsibilities that a school district has to a child who is eligible for special education services and the child’s parents. 

Chapter Four outlines the actions that parents can take if they disagree with school officials about their child’s education program.
