 What is the Owasso Area Transition Team?
 

The Owasso Area Transition Team is comprised of members from the Department of Rehabilitative Services, Owasso Schools, Collinsville Schools, Skiatook Schools, and Sperry Schools.  Our goal is to identify and implement ways to meet the transition needs of students and act as a resource for other Transition Teams who are striving towards the same goal.   

 

What is Transition?
 
Transition services are crucial in supporting students as they plan for post-school goals. Transition plans assist students in meeting their post-school goals, such as gainful employment, post-secondary education or training, and independent living.  Transition plans are designed to meet individual needs as students progress through school.

About our Community Resource and Transition Fair
 
The Community Resource and Transition Fair provides students and families with a great opportunity to learn about resources for independent living, post-secondary education, training opportunities and career options, and community participation that will help them to prepare to move to life after high school.

Job Resources
 
The goal of secondary education is to prepare students for the world of work.  There are a variety of community resources available to help students with disabilities find and maintain employment.  The following information and links are about some of the services available in our community.
 
 
Department of Rehabilitation Services
 
The purpose of Vocational Rehabilitation Services is to help eligible individuals with disabilities prepare for work and become gainfully employed.  The services a person receives are determined by the person's Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE).   This plan outlines a person's employment goal and services that are needed to enable the person to achieve successful employment.

The Work Adjustment Training Program through The Bridges Foundation is primarily a community-based program.  Students must be an approved client of the Department of Rehabilitation Services.
 
Students will spend one day per week in the classroom and four days per week in the community.  The program lasts three hours per day.  These three hours count as elective credits; therefore, the student must have met their core credit requirements to be eligible to participate.
