This transition checklist is intended to be a guide for North Dakota students with disabilities, teachers, parents, and agency personnel to help drive the transition process in an orderly and organized manner. The checklist provides suggestions and activities for grades 8-12 and students ages 14-21. The information is organized in sequence to establish a student's foundation for planning and to build on each previous year's accomplishments. Recommendations and suggestions can be individualized according to need and anticipated outcomes. Some are directed to teacher initiation, others for students and parents as well as agency personnel. The checklist also serves as a guide for identification of Individualized Education Program goals and objectives, and when used collaboratively with a student portfolio, it is intended to ensure successful preparation and planning for life after high school. Space is provided for notes, questions, and comments for the student's team to address, as well as to check off completed activities. (CR)
