Post High and Transition Services
Transition services are for students with intellectual disabilities, ages 18-22. Cache County School District has two transition options: Cache County Post High and PEER (Post-secondary Education, Employment and Research) Project. Both transition programs work with students, their families, and various outside agencies to help students set goals for their future, including employment, continuing education, community access, and independent living.
Cache County Post High is located just north of Sky View High School. PEER Project is located on the Utah State University campus.
Students in the Post High program participate in a classroom setting, as well as activities and outings in the community that allow students real-life experiences to enable them to be more independent. Students participate in unpaid internships in community settings, including Lee's Marketplace, USU Dining Services, Aggie Chocolate Factory, and many more. They also work on independent living skills like cooking, laundry, cleaning, budgeting, and other tasks. These activities prepare students for their future while instilling a pattern of goal-setting and achievement.
PEER Project is a joint program with Cache and Logan City School District, housed at Utah State University. PEER Project receives support at USU through the Center for Persons with Disabilities and USU's Dining Services. Students attending PEER project are working towards part- or full-time paid employment. Some students attending PEER have plans to live independently--in their own apartment or home. Many of the students attending use public transportation independently to access their school or community.
More about our Transition Programs: Special Education students make and achieve goals through the Post High and PEER Programs
A "Transition Fair" is held each year in February for families of students of all ages with special needs to discover options in planning for their future. The information offered at this fair will help parents and families find solutions for the future of their children. These agencies offer sources of hope, financial support, and independence for those with special needs as they transition to adulthood. Follow our Facebook Page to be informed of this and other events that support students with special needs and their families.
Community Resources available for transition students and adults with special needs.
