Post-Secondary Planning

Potential college athletes: Go here for information on NCAA requirements and standards. All students wishing to compete at the college level must register with the NCAA clearinghouse.

Transition from high school can be challenging time for all teenagers, but especially so for those with learning and attention challenges, and other disabilities.  Transition for students with IEP’s and 504’s involves extensive planning and goal setting.  Families and students will want to consider options such as colleges and other postsecondary education and training programs that will develop career and vocational skills, employment, and independent living skills.

To help families and students map out this process, the Bureau of Special Education has developed a website, "Pennsylvania Secondary Transition Guide", which can be accessed at: http://www.secondarytransition.org/.

Other resources are the Lower Merion School District Transition eBoard, the Transition Guide, and Transition Timelines, all of which include information and contacts specific to Lower Merion and Montgomery County: http://www.dmmonturo.lmsd.site.eboard.com/
