November 7, 2019, Caroline County Public School’s Parent Teacher Resource
Center hosted a “Full Life Ahead” Transition workshop. Susan Gayle, PTRC Special Education
Coordinator, and Melissa White, Special Education Transition Coordinator,
welcomed thirty educators, parents, grandparents, and students with a two-hour
workshop. This workshop provided the
attendees with a framework for success as they transition from middle school to
high school or from high school to adult life.
Special Education Department and Virginia Department of Education supplied
participants with a workbook and guide to assist with transition goals and
expectations. This workshop is funded
through a grant Caroline County’s Parent Teacher Resource Center secured in
2018. The resources purchased have
enabled the PTRC to offer this workshop 1-2 times each school year.
The “Full Life Ahead” workshop aligns with the CCPS Strategic Plan Pathways 2020 as we prepare students to be successfully employed, enlisted or enrolled.
