Transition Learning Center

About TLC

The Transition Learning Center serves students aged 18-22 who are eligible for special education services, have completed 4 years of high school and met their graduation requirements, and reside within the boundaries of NDSEC member districts. Participation at TLC is determined by a student's IEP team and indicates that the student requires continued special education services to acquire the skills needed to progress toward adult independence. This program provides individualized instruction, as outlined in each student's IEP, to promote success toward post-secondary goals in the areas of education, employment, training and independent living. In our mission to prepare students for life after school, the TLC team values and promotes collaboration with students, their families, school districts and community partners.

Vision Statement

To develop, nurture, and establish students as young adult learners in a collaborative, community- based program that supports and enhances students' independence and promotes adulthood success in the areas of: employment, post-secondary education and training, independent living, and community.

To meet the needs of our young adults, the Transition Learning Center staff works as a team to provide a continuum of programs and training to support young adult learners at all levels of functioning to maximize student success.
