- A student whose IEP team recommends the student for continued services to address transition goals specified within the student’s IEP
- District 200 also outlines that a student who will be entering the program should have met all of their graduation requirements prior to entering Life Connections to ensure they will leave with a high school diploma.
Life Connections is currently a four-tier program designed to meet the needs of our diverse learners. Tier 1 is housed at WNHS and Tiers 2-4 are housed at MCC.
The program focuses on the six pillars of transition which include: Post-secondary education, Vocational Education, Integrated Employment, Continuing and Adult Education, Independent Living, and Recreation and Leisure. Students who are in the program participate in vocational training within the school setting and in the community.
