    TRANSITION PATHWAYS

     PART 1: STUDENT PASSPORT

    The Student Passport is a document (both hard copy and on portable disk) which documents and records a student’s individual life-steps past, present and projected for the future that will:

    ? Help the facility staff to gain a more complete picture of the student and his interests and abilities in order to aid him in his future

    transition;

    ? Give the student significant help as he transitions back into community life and secures employment.

The creation of the Passport should be on-going throughout the student’s facility length of stay. A copy in the form of a disk should be given to

    the student on release. A copy should also be kept on file at the facility in case of future need either by other facilities or by the student should he lose his original disk.
