    Welcome to the King Philip Regional School District's Transition Website!


    October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month: 

    Celebrate Differences and Raise Awareness

     



    This website was developed to help you to navigate the road from school to adult life for your student(s) receiving special education services. This is referred to as the transition planning process, and it can be both exciting and overwhelming. It may require a mix of transition services, experiences, agency support, and community resources. Transition planning looks very different for each student, based on his/her needs, strengths, preferences, and interests.

    Together, KP students, staff, and families work as a team to identify and create an action plan toward his/her post-secondary plans. You will find information on a variety of transition-related topics, including the transition planning process; postsecondary options; adult disability resources; and training materials. Please click on the active links and icons throughout this website for more information! Click the index to the left to open additional web pages!

    We hope you find this information useful as we all strive toward the ultimate goal of helping your student transition to a productive and meaningful adult life!

    Please contact your child's special education liaison or guidance counselor if you have specific questions about his or her transition plan. KPHS staff contact information can be found here.

    Parents, please click here or on the tab to the left to learn about our KP Special Education Parent Advisory Council.
