Transition Planning

Transition Program

The Bayhill High School Transition Program utilizes a student/family focused model designed to ensure successful transition from school to adulthood.  Since transition looks different for each student/family, the program is designed to offer many options based on the individual needs of the student, incorporating the student’s strengths and interests.  These options include post-secondary education (2-year and 4-year college), vocational training, continuing and adult education, independent living skills, and supported employment services.

Life Skills Course

Life Skills course includes many transition activities designed to encourage students to explore their maximum potential while learning the skills necessary to transition from school and parental care into adult independence.  The course is designed to teach students how to incorporate Life Skills related knowledge into everyday behavior.  Students are exposed to information and skill building exercises geared towards personal, social, and emotional development.

The goals of the Life Skills course are to educate and empower students to develop and understand their Individual Transition Plan (ITP). This course is designed to reinforce basic skills in Reading/Math/English and to teach students how to apply these skills to real world problems and situations.  Students will practice and demonstrate an understanding of the following Life Skills appropriate behaviors:

  • Self-Advocacy
  • Self-Awareness
  • Self-Development
  • Self-Motivation
  • Self-Sufficiency
