Osseo Secondary Transition
The Osseo Secondary Transition Center (OSTC) is a program for young adults with a range of abilities and disabilities who need assistance making transition from school to life in the community.
Students are between the ages of 17 and 21 years. Students are referred to the OSTC by their attendance area high school Individual Education Plan (IEP) Team. Each student at the center has an Individual Education Plan that clearly documents his or her transition service needs.
OSTC programming provides opportunities for students to expand their skills - both job skills and interpersonal skills. OSTC is a place where students can build self-esteem and learn about self-acceptance and self-advocacy. The center focuses on three transition areas:
- Post-secondary education and training
- Independent living
OSTC staff provides linkage for student to community resources within the transition areas. Resources include technical and community colleges (secondary and post-secondary classes), rehabilitation services, social services, community cultural and recreational facilities.
