Transition students have the opportunity to participate in Work-Based Learning alongside traditional students. The student's IEP determines the most appropriate program option to further their college and career exploration combined with academics and disability services. Based on the needs of the student, the IEP team determines if the student should take WBL for credit or gain work experience through a community-based transition activity.
Resources for transition students
Our district has accessibility to agencies that can access career and life coaches for each student with an IEP for employment training and placements. Dickson County Schools work hand-in-hand with these organizations to forge connections between our local businesses and students with disabilities to provide them with the opportunities in career exploration and academic success.
