The goal of Polk Transition Services is to provide a continuous process that begins by the time a student turns 14
or is in the eighth grade, whichever comes first,
and continues until the student graduates from high school.
For students graduating with a special diploma transition services continue until the school year the student turns 22.
Transition planning focuses on the plan and dreams that a student has for the future and provides the services and supports that the student needs to make a successful move into adult life.
Polk Transition Services will focus on Postsecondary Education, Parental support, and Transition skills. We have transition programs at several of our high schools, and partnerships throughout Polk County. These programs provide an opportunity for students 18 – 21 years of age to work toward their desired postsecondary goals. We address the students wherever their current needs are to transition into adulthood through continued education, work experience, and leisure activities.
