Planning for life after high school? March 9 Transition fair helps students with disabilities prepare
Posted on 02/12/2019
Finishing high school can be an exciting time, but it can also bring anxiety about what’s next and how to plan for the future. To assist students with disabilities and their families in planning for life after high school, the Prince William/Manassas/Manassas Park Transition Council will host its annual Transition Fair. This free event will be held from noon–3:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, at the Edward L. Kelly Leadership Center, 14715 Bristow Rd., Manassas 20112.

The Transition Fair offers students and parents the opportunity to meet with representatives from private and public agencies that provide a variety of support services to youth and adults with disabilities who are facing the changes brought about as they complete their high school careers. Students and parents may also attend information sessions about:
  • Graduation requirements in Virginia;
  • Transition planning;
  • Guardianship in Virginia;
  • Supported employment;
  • Social Security;
  • Career planning;
  • Rehabilitative services; and
  • Special needs estate planning.
The information presented will prove helpful to students in the transition planning process. The Transition Fair focuses on students who receive special education services through Prince William County, Manassas City, or Manassas Park Public Schools.

Accommodations and interpreters can be provided upon request. Requests made after February 28 cannot be guaranteed.
