The Elk Grove Unified School District’s Transition Services program is funded through State and Federal funds to provide services to secondary students with IEPs.

Seven Transition Specialists provide regional services to nine high schools and middle schools, three alternative schools, Adult Transition Programs and Jessie Baker.  Middle school student services include: career assessment, exploration, transition orientations and tours to high school. High school special education students participate in career assessments and exploration; work based learning, paid training placements and field explorations. Students that are preparing to transition out of high school are provided with post-secondary education and training options as well as linkages to programs, services, and supports.  Students also may participate in the Transition Partnership Program while in high school which is a collaborative partnership between EGUSD and the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation.
