TASSEL Transition Program
TASSEL – Teaching All Students Skills for Employment & Life
TASSEL Transition Program is designed for students with disabilities currently receiving special education services, 18-21 years old, who have significant needs in at least two of the three transition areas: post-secondary education & training, employment, and independent living skills. Students qualify for transition support through the IEP planning process during high school. Placement in TASSEL is determined on an individual basis and according to the student's specific transition needs.
The goal of TASSEL Transition Program is to prepare students to achieve independence, to support them in securing competitive integrated employment, and to assist them in becoming fully participating members of their community. TASSEL Transition Program provides a supportive learning environment in which students continue to develop their skills, explore a variety of opportunities to find their passion, and have a positive plan for their future.
Students in TASSEL participate in a variety of learning experiences based on their specific transition needs. Additional support is provided for employment training and coursework. Students have individualized programs based on their IEP goals which may include career preparation work through Pathways classes or courses at a pre-college or college level offered at Hennepin Technical College (HTC), South Campus in Eden Prairie. Our district transition program is located at TASSEL Education Center, 8040 Mitchel Road. TASSEL Transition is a post-high school choice program; participation is not legally required.
