A presentation by

Jill Curry, NPS Transition Specialist and

Tony Sirignano, NPS Job Developer

Jill Curry & Tony Sirignano will review transition planning and the Transition Planning Form (TPF).  They will review a range of transition topics including supporting student self-determination skills, the 688 referral process, employment, post-secondary education and community based resources.  Participants will be provided with handouts including a copy of the Transition Planning Form and various resources for supporting students through the transition planning process.

If you have a child turning 14 this year or already 14 or older, this meeting is for you!  Transition planning begins the year a child turns 14 per MA Special Education law.  More information on Transition is here

Room 473 at Newton North High School, 457 Walnut Street, Newtonville.

Networking and light refreshments beginning at 7:15 pm.

Directions to Newton North and a link to the map of the school are here

Directions to Classroom 473.  Park and enter the building at the Theatre entrance as this puts you closest to the meeting  room. Classroom 473 is at the top of staircase H.  To get to Stairway H enter the Theatre entrance and turn to the right, the doors the stairway H are at the end of the glass wall.

To get to the closest elevator, walk through the Theatre lobby to the long corridor toward the main part of the school.  After you pass the block of rooms for the Innovation labs, there is a small incline in the corridor, at the end of the incline there is a small hallway on the right. Go down this hallway.  The elevator is two-thirds of the way down the hallway.  If you pass the cafeteria, turn around and find the small hall that will be on your left.  Once on the 4th floor, go to the right out of the elevator towards the end of the hall.  The room numbers will begin in the 460′s and end at 470′s.

We will have volunteers positioned in the Theatre lobby, at the entrance to the small hallway and at the elevator on the 4th floor!  Good opportunity to tour NNHS!
