PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. -- The Special Education Department within Pulaski County Special School District will host its first Virtual Secondary Transition, Career and Resources Fair on October 20, 2020 from 9:45 am - 4pm.
Transition fairs are an opportunity for families of high school students with disabilities to find available resources and learn about the transition from high school to adulthood. Students, parents, families, and teachers are welcome to attend.
A variety of adult service agencies will be present to provide information about resources available to students who will be transitioning to adult life. Local universities, career technical schools, vocational rehabilitation and other providers will present information about general admissions, employment, educational resources, housing and other services for people with disabilities. All students and caregivers are encouraged to attend at least one transition fair in order to equip themselves with valuable information.
