Everyone experiences transitions throughout their lifetime, no matter how big or small. In the educational environment, the goal of transition planning is to prepare all students, while in school, for adult life. Planning facilitates the smooth transition from public education (entitlement) to adult services (eligibility).

The school system does not carry medical insurance for accidents that occur at school, including non-sport related injuries, such as trips and falls, physical education injuries, and recess/playground injuries. Thus, parents are encouraged to enroll students in the accident insurance program offered through HCPSS.
