Mission Statement  

At Olentangy Local Schools, we coordinate experiences between the community, students, families, and staff in order to improve academic and functional achievement and facilitate movement from school to the student's post-secondary goals. 

Vision Statement 

We are committed to building inclusive partnerships between students, families, staff, and the community in order to prepare our students to flourish in post-secondary education, the workplace, and/or community settings. 

Purpose Statement 

To successfully transition our students, we will facilitate inclusive connections between students with disabilities, school, and outside the community, and educate them towards their highest potential as self-advocates. Individualized assessments and person-centered planning will guide the team in developing transition services and activities that foster academic, occupational, vocational, self-determination, and independent living skills needed for post-secondary preparation and engagement.
