The mission of the Cherokee County Interagency Transition Council is to facilitate a collaborative transition process for students with disabilities that will lead to the students' and their families' desired post-school outcome. The goal of the council is to provide a clearinghouse to disseminate updated transition information regarding available services in the area. Agencies representing post-secondary education, post-secondary vocational training and employment, and post-secondary independent living skills present information to the group and questions are answered. A PLU course is offered by Cherokee county Schools to encourage school staff to become more familiar with local and regional agencies and opportunities.
Other Activities include:
• hosting of an Agency Information Fair each spring that is open to parents, students, school staff and the community
• collaborating with community resources to maintain existing services and develop additional resources for students and their families.
