  • Lynda Jordan/Mesa Public Schools

Families throughout the East Valley are invited gather information and talk to experts about how to help students with disabilities succeed in the transition from high school to adulthood. Join us from 5 to 8 p.m. April 8.

The 2014 Transition Expo is set for 5 to 8 p.m. April 8 at Mountain View High, 2700 E. Brown Road, Mesa. Everyone is welcome! Admission is free. Get a map and directions.

What can parents and students expect at the expo?

“For many parents and students, life after high school can be intimidating. A lot of planning goes into making sure that students with disabilities can succeed after they graduate,” said JennaRose Doras, Mesa High transition specialist.

“To meet experts and gather information on transition-related programs and services, all in one place, can really help students and their families prepare for the future without feeling overwhelmed,” she added.

The expo will feature a wealth of resources that support students with a wide range of disabilities. Topics will focus on school-to-work programs, vocational rehabilitation, independent living, guardianship, state services and much more. Guests may bring a canned-food item to donate if they’d like to enter a prize drawing.

The expo is sponsored by Mesa Public Schools, the Tempe Union High School District and Gilbert Public Schools. For more information call Rebecca Whitlock, Mountain View transition coordinator, (480) 472-7023.
