At least by age sixteen (16), Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams, in cooperation with local adult services agencies, begin planning for transition to adulthood.

IEP teams work collaboratively with students and families to design employment/vocational and independent living instruction to meet individual student needs.

Students with significant disabilities have numerous options available for transition.  These include individualized programming at the high school, Community Campus (extending the high school experience beyond four years), shared day placements between the Sioux Falls School District and adult services agencies, and day placements with adult services providers. IEP teams provide guidance and assistance to students and families in developing a transition plan.
