Transition is movement or change for a student, without interruption, to future adult settings upon exit from high school. The Transition IEP (TIEP) meeting includes the student, family, school staff, agency staff, and others identified by the TIEP team. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) emphasizes the importance of involving students in meaningful ways in this process.
