Transitioning Students with Disabilities from Middle to High School
Frasier, James R.
TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v4 n2 Article 2 Nov 2007
Many students with disabilities entering the 9th grade express concern about getting lost in the larger high school environment, being picked on by older students, and having more challenging academic classes. The transition from middle-to-high school process for students with disabilities at Westminster High School in suburban Los Angeles is a school-wide collaborative approach involving parents, students, middle and high school academic and special educators, and middle and high school administrators. Key components of the Westminster High School transition process include collaborative scheduling of visits by regular high school academic special educators to middle schools; collaborative scheduling and holding of 8th grade spring semester IEP meetings at Westminster High School; personal and group parent and student tours of high school campus during 8th grade spring semester; and an eight-week summer orientation program.
