 P.233Q Transition Newsletter            Volume I

    Transition “a change or passing from one condition, place, thing, activity, topic”   

            Welcome to the inaugural edition of the P.233Q Transition Newsletter. The purpose of the P.233Q Transition Newsletter is to provide parents with insight into the varied methods, styles, adapted strategies and varied experiences that are preparing students for the “transition” of school to post school life.

            The newsletter will be updated three times throughout the school year in line with student Report Card distribution

            It cannot be over emphasized, the need and benefit to think about and plan for post school life of your child / our students, earlier, rather than later, commencing at the middle school level and continuing throughout the youngster’s school experience.

            As Transition Linkage Coordinator my role will be to work with you the parent, school staff and outside agencies to: create / support / expand in house vocational experiences, seek and grow community work experiences, link families and agencies early on to facilitate the transition to post school life. 

            The Transition Team includes, but, may not be limited to; you the parent, the student, Teachers, Paraprofessionals, Related Service Providers, Agencies, Caseworkers, and Community linkages.

            Some examples of Transition success during the 2009 school year includes 5 students, successfully attending the Co-Op Tech Training program in Manhattan, 2 students processed and employed as N.Y.C. Custodial helpers, 1 student finishing at the CVS drug store chain employee training program, 1 student successfully enrolled in the District 75 Paraprofessional training program and all aging out students whose families desired placement were placed in over 21 programs.

 

            The examples listed below are of the vocational experiences afforded youngsters at the sites that comprise P.233Q. Future Transition Newsletters will update you on events, activities and benchmarks relating to Transition within the P.233Q organization
