Carroll County Public Schools will sponsor a Transition Fair on Friday, March 15, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Carroll Community College. The fair is open to students in grades 10, 11, and 12 with IEPs and 504s and their parents and guardians.

The purpose of the transition fair is to deliver content and resources that are most likely to benefit the students. Students’ opportunities to learn about supports and services that are available to them as they transition to adulthood increase when they attend a transition fair involving multiple stakeholders. These stakeholders include employment support agencies, benefit specialists, legal counsel, community resources, and representatives from community colleges, universities, and career and technical schools.

Nine breakout sessions will provide information about a range of topics, including self-advocacy/self-determination, how to find and keep a job, enhancing communication for employment opportunities, future financial planning, mental health supports and employment services, Developmental Disabilities Administration, Division of Rehabilitation Services including Pre-Employment Transition Services, navigating Social Security and Health Benefits, and the new Maryland Transition Digital Portfolio.

For more information, please contact Mary Pat Dye at 410-751-3953.
