Welcome to Secondary School
Upcoming Transition Meeting
What is a Transition Meeting?
(a) Outline the details of a transition plan that will be prepared for your child
(b) Discuss the potential changes in support and routine your child will see in secondary school
(c) Discuss any concerns you or your child may have as graduation approaches
Meet the Transitional Planning Team
The Transitional Planning Team is complete by you and your child! In fact, you're integral to the process!
**Should your child require professional services (i.e. a psychologist), they too are part of the process
Strategy for Transition Plan
-Utilize non-teaching professional reports and suggestions.
- Include specific steps and details with deadlines and strategies
- Possibly contain alternative expectations that teach social skills related to post-secondary goals
- Be revised throughout the school year, particularly to changes in your child's needs

Purpose of the Plan
In education, we look at the whole student - academically, socially and behaviourally. In order for your child to achieve success in academics, we need to ensure minimal issues in social/behavioural. This plan will help your child cope with changes to daily routine, classmates, activities, etc. It is in essence, a blueprint that we begin, and that your child's secondary school educators continue to work with.
Think of this analogy. We are the writers of a play, where your child's secondary school educators are the actors. We need to make sure the script makes sense for them to have great performances!
I look forward to meeting with you!
