Sonoma County Office of Education

Transition Fair

At the annual Transition Fair, special education students and their families learn about the local programs and services that are available to students who are no longer eligible for school-based special education programs. The event brings together over 40 agencies that provide higher education, job training, employment, day programs, living options, and health services to adults with disabilities. Students and their families can talk with agency representatives, pick up informational brochures, and get their questions answered as they consider their plan for transitioning from school to adulthood.

The Transition Fair is a service of the Sonoma County Transition Consortium, including representatives from SCOE, North Bay Regional Center, Department of Rehabilitation, local school districts, and adult service providers.

"I like Amarosa because there's a much smaller student count and so teachers can be one-on-one with you. They can actually help you and be one-on-one with you while the class is doing something else. I feel like that's a huge game-changer." - Leilan, Student
