Transition of Students with Disabilities to Postsecondary Education: A Guide for High School Educators
US Department of Education
For students with disabilities, a big factor in their successful transition from high school to postsecondary education is accurate knowledge about their civil rights. The purpose of this guide is to provide high school educators with answers to questions students with disabilities may have as they get ready to move to the postsecondary education environment. In preparing this guide, the authors have highlighted the significant differences between the rights and responsibilities of students with disabilities in the high school setting and the rights and responsibilities these students will have once they are in the postsecondary education setting. Following a set of frequently asked questions, they have provided some practical suggestions that high school educators can share with students to facilitate their successful transition to postsecondary education. (Contains 14 endnotes.)
