The Transition Council goals are:

To inform transition-age students and parents of post-school options; to reach a greater population;
To conduct a review of available services, programs, and eligibility information for students.
Each fall, the Transition Council sponsors a Parent Information Night at some of the following school districts: Bainbridge Island, Bremerton, Central Kitsap, North Kitsap, and South Kitsap. Click on this link to see this years schedule: Parent/Student Information Night Information 2011.
