State Transition Team Summit

Thursday, November 13, 2014, the PEPNET2.0 New Hampshire State Transition Team presented their first event in the Summit Series of Activities entitled "What's Next? Life After High School." This event was a student panel and information fair for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students and their families; held at the University of New Hampshire Manchester campus and was attended by over 50 participants. Parents, students and service providers had the opportunity to speak with admissions counselors, explore exhibits from eight agencies and participate in a student question and answer panel. This project is funded by the Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education under the New Hampshire Deaf Education Initiative with communication access services supported by the New Hampshire Vocational Rehabilitation Program. The PEPNET2.0 State Transition Team aims to prepare students for successful postsecondary transitions by providing resources and information related to academic, career and independent living settings. This was the first in a series of transition activities sponsored by the PEPNET2.0 State Team, so stay tuned for more to come.
