We are excited for the launch of the new PA Secondary Transition website, which has been jointly funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education (PDE-BSE) and Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (PA OVR).

The website is intended to be a "one-stop shop" for general information about transition, practices and resources aligned with Transition Discoveries, an inter-agency shared events calendar, and a place to share current announcements and information.
