Prairie Lakes AEA and Transition


Prairie Lakes Area Education Agency currently has two transition coordinators who specialize in secondary transition. Additionally, each local school district has an AEA Building Representative assigned to each building in a district.  Please feel free to contact your AEA Building Representative with questions, concerns or a referral to one of the transition coordinators.

To know which transition coordinator is assigned to your middle school or high school, please refer to the contact tab in the menu bar or click HERE.

The transition planning process uses a students strengths, interests and preferences to develop a vision for the future that includes living, learning and working. Transition assessments are essential in developing this plan. Based on these assessments, the IEP team addresses the following:

  • Specially designed instruction may include:
    • Daily living skills (living)
    • Academic skills (learning)
    • Vocational skills (working)
  • Related services (assistive technology, etc.)
  • Courses & activities (classes needed)
  • Employment options and experiences
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Community experiences
  • Linkages to community agencies (IVRS, DHS, etc)

To ensure successful transition planning, be sure to consider any relevant service providers, such as:

  • The IEP team
  • Transition Coordinators when needed
  • Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services
  • County Case management
  • Department of Human Services
  • College Disability Services
