Students have a variety of transition options at the HAHS and HACC. Once again, the IEP team considers the student's course of study and designs transition activities that address the students desired post-school outcomes in the areas of post-secondary education, post-secondary employment, community living, and recreation and leisure.
During their ninth grade year, students receive functional vocational assessments, varied inventories, and career exploration activities to assist them in selecting a course of study. As students prepare to enter ninth grade, they can choose BRIDGES, Pre-Vocational, and/or Employability Skills classes.
Beginning in the eleventh grade, the VITAL Program is offered. To prepare for post-secondary education options, students continue in the academic program with job shadowing, college visitation, SAT, ACT, etc.
