Next Step Transition Program
Edgewood City School is proud to introduce the “Next Step Transition Program.” This program is housed at Edgewood High School. It is designed to provide our young adults with disabilities the opportunity to gain individualized independent living and employment skills needed for the “Next Step” of their lives and assist them into their transition into adulthood. While the young adults are with us working on their internship in adulthood, we refer to them as Interns. All of the interns in the program have completed all graduation requirements prior to being accepted into the program. The “Next Step” classroom is designed to mirror a small mock apartment while providing space for work task skill building and money sense. Thank you to all those that have made this program’s vision a reality!
