Special Education: Transition Resources

Hello Parents,

Welcome to the NISD Transition page.  This site will hopefully answer any questions you may have about your Childs transition after high school to the real world.   Transition does not start in high school; this is a process that needs to begin in elementary school, with the identification of the student’s interest and preferences.   A major goal for transition is having the students “know” they have a disability and what accommodations and modifications successfully impact their learning process.

NISD has a variety of special education programs and services that help support students with disabilities in the classroom. Our goal is not just for classroom accomplishments in the classroom but in all areas of life, and this includes post secondary education and the workforce.  Parent Involvement and active student participation is an important aspect of our program.  Transition cannot take place without support at home.  Help your child understand the support and services that benefit them at school. 

This site will have several links to help answer any questions you may have about transition services. 

If you have any questions regarding the transition process please contact me at 210-397-8859 or Samuel.gonzalez@nisd.net   You can also contact your child’s high school campus coordinator or students case manager

Thank you,

Sam Gonzalez

Transition Coordinator NISD
