Project STEPS: Assessment of Current Transition Practices and Transition System Development Plan.
This set of forms is part of Project STEPS (Sequenced Transition to Education in the Public Schools). They are intended to assist communities develop and use a formalized process for assessing the current status of transition within their community and for interagency planning related to the development of a community-wide transition team. The forms are to be completed by a community team during a three-day intensive inservice training session. The inservice process involves three steps: (1) completion of the team vision and scope statement; (2) assessment of the current status (whether formalized policies and procedures are in place, partially in place, or not in place); and (3) development of the transition system plan, including choice of activities for implementation, timelines for completion, and assignment of responsible individuals. The assessment process involves evaluation of current administrative structure, the Interagency Committee, staff development, family involvement, and child transition. (DB)
