We’ve now uploaded all five Transition Portfolio Training modules, which originally debuted in March, to the INSTRC website. You’ll find them under the Training tab and on the Transition Portfolio Training and Support page. Scroll down to “Archived Transition Portfolio Training Modules.”
Scrolling even further on the page brings you to Transition Portfolio Office Hours. If you have a question, we’re here, every Wednesday, from 2:30-4:30 p.m., Eastern Time. Just click on the link to join the discussion.
Portfolio-related information update: After we completed the five modules in March, we learned of a change to the submission requirements. The finished portfolios of students with IEPs must contain, at a minimum, at least four artifacts (one per year). In order to better reflect a student’s strengths, preferences, and interests, however, best practice is that teachers and their students add at least four artifacts to their portfolios per year, for a total of 16 by the time students exit high school. Artifacts must provide information about all four domains: Student Information, Student Learning Characteristics, Academic Skills, and Employability Skills.
