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.
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.
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.
