So, for next year (yes, I’m already thinking about next year!) I think we are ready to take my program another step in the right direction – off campus! In a perfect world and according to best practices, an adult transition program like mine should truly be community based -- not stuck on a high school campus.
Now there are lots of different ways that might look. I’ve heard of programs that operate out of an apartment - how cool would that be?! Some operate out of various public facilities (libraries, churches, etc). Still others that simply use school district property that is just separate from a typical student campus. Or even partnerships with local community colleges to use parts of their campuses.
