Bridges provides additional support while students adjust to the adult environment and learn more independence. We offer a bridge from the secure world of a classroom to the adult world.
Three guiding questions:
- Where do you want to be when you leave District 20?
- How can we help you get there?
- What long-term supports do you need?
What Services are Offered?
- Adult Services Agency Connections
- Community & Social Opportunities
- Career Development
- Post - Secondary Educational Connections.
Who is Eligible for Bridges?
Any student with an individualized educational plan is eligible. The young man or woman must also be 18-21 years old, living in District 20, and has met his or her high school or individual graduation requirements.
What is Social Graduation?
Social graduation allows the student to participate in the traditional graduation ceremony. However, the official diploma will be granted when the student exits Bridges. The transcript will remain open allowing students to earn one elective credit per semester.
