  • 18-Plus Transition Program (18+)

    The 18+ program is a special education setting designed for students ages 18 to 22 who have met graduation requirements, but require continued instruction in independent living, employment and vocation, leisure, and recreation. The 18+ program provides transition services for students through classroom instruction, community-based learning, and work-based learning experiences. Participation is IEP driven and based solely on post-secondary goals identified for the student. Completion and mastery of IEP goals results in the cessation of services. GPISD’s transition services include three pathways.
