Agencies in Schools

In by Paige Haberkorn

What are agencies in schools?

Organizations and people who are part of your transition team and support your goals for life after high school. Ideally, agency personnel in schools provide…

  • An inviting and welcoming atmosphere at your school.
  • A place for you to work and meet at your school.
  • Trusting and good relationships, focused on YOU, to meet you where you are in life.
  • Support during your IEP meetings and other transition planning meetings.
  • Opportunities to help you learn and grow.

Agencies in schools result in…

  • Good relationships between you, your family, school, and agencies that can help you transition to life after high school.
  • A team focusing on YOU and your goals.
  • Helping you explore work, education, and goals after high school.
  • Offering classes and workshops to help you prepare for life after high school.
  • Getting supports to help you plan for your future while you’re still in school.
