    The Transition Council goals are:
    1. To create awareness about transition issues among educators and to implement a system to inform and share information annually;
    2. To inform transition-age students and parents of post-school options; to reach a greater population;
    3. To conduct a review of available services, programs, and eligibility information for students. 
    Each fall, the Transition Council sponsors a Parent Information Night.
    Parents and students are invited to the event to learn about local community agencies and services that are available to assist students with disabilities and their families.
