State Transition Resources:

This site provides access to a variety of transition-related resources in TX.
TX SEA's Transition Website

AchieveTexas is a system to help students (and their parents) make wise education choices. It is based on the belief that the curricula of the 21st century should combine rigorous academics with relevant career education. When schools integrate academic and technical education, students can see the "usefulness" of what they are learning. The system also facilitates a seamless transition from secondary to postsecondary opportunities.

The Legal Framework for the Child-Centered Special Education Process is a template in electronic format that summarizes state and federal requirements for special education by topic. It is an effective tool in managing and maintaining compliant records for student identification, eligibility, placement, participation, progress, achievement, accountability, and graduation.
