Transition Services


The office of Transition Services at Centinela Valley Union High School District offers vocational assessments to measure areas of interests, post-secondary opportunities and training to our students with special needs. Our office is committed to collaborate closely, with our school sites teams, throughout the IEP process.


In addition, our Transition Services office collaborates with outside agencies, such as, the California Department of Rehabilitation, Workability I Program, the California Promise Initiative and the Transition Partnership Program (TPP).


The students, through the IEP process, are placed on a job, within the community and based upon career’s desires and availability. The students seeking employment are encouraged to join the JOB CLUB and work with a District Transition Specialist throughout this process.


Workability I.


The Workability I program provides comprehensive pre-employment training, work experience placement and follow-up for high school students receiving special education services, who are making the transition from school to work, independent living, and post-secondary education or training.
