Kalamazoo County Transition Fair a Success

Making the move to post-high school life is tough. The County-Wide Transition Team at Kalamazoo RESA helps students with disabilities and their families think about life after school and works with them to face the specific challenges they meet.

The County-Wide Transition Team, part of special education at Kalamazoo RESA, held its third annual Transition Fair at the Service Center on March 29, and attracted 111 participants. The event is designed for students, families and school staff who are involved in the transition of anyone with disabilities.

The event offered information on transition through a variety of informational booths.
