Transition Program 

This program is designed for students aged 18 to 22 years old, who are enrolled in the Wheaton-Warrenville Community Unit School District 200. Students enrolled in this program have attended four years of high school and have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). To be a candidate for this program, the high school IEP team must recommend that the student continue to receive special education services in order to promote the acquisition of skills that lead to adult independence. The program provides functional education and training in domestic, vocational, community, and social/leisure skills.
 
The Transition Program is located in the community with easy access to public transportation:

Goals
Transition Program planning becomes primarily student-directed, although parents continue to remain vital members of the IEP team. The Transition Program focuses on creating opportunities for students to build on post-secondary goals in the classroom, vocational, and community settings. These outcome-based goals and objectives are the foundation for each student's IEP and drive their activities throughout the day. The IEP team gathers this information from the individual student's preferences, interests, needs and strengths. As part of student future planning, Transition Program staff will work with students and families to identify and connect them with adult support services and eligible benefits available through community and state agencies.
 
Families are encouraged to visit the Special Needs Future Planning site created by the CUSD 200 transition team as a guide to adult support services and eligible benefits.
