Get connected to transition services
If you are a student with a disability, your high school staff can connect you with the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) and a pre-employment transition services provider (pre-ETS) to help you explore and prepare for a job or further education. MRC can help you explore interests and connect to opportunities both during and after High School.
The following videos will demonstrate how a strong school and MRC partnership can get you connected to services that support your employment related goals as you near graduation. Schools can include MRC into your planning for adult life two years before your graduation date. Some students may be eligible for Chapter 688, an option for those with significant disabilities who will need more support.
Watch the videos below to learn about transition services, and how your school can help you get connected and benefit from MRC.
