The parents of Hilliard City Schools students with disabilities can learn about available support and programs at the Transition Resource Fair from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, at Hilliard Darby High School, 4200 Leppert Road.

It is the third year the district has offered the fair,which is organized by the transitional specialists, Jeffery Feathers, Corey Poe and Kristen Welch, assigned to each of the three high schools.

The transitional specialists provide services in one capacity or another to about 150 families in the district, Welch said.

Thirty to 35 organizations are expected to attend the resource fair, which is presented in an open house format, she said.

The resource fair provides information and resources to graduating seniors to help them begin the next step in their lives, but it also is for families with children continuing in the district, Welch said.

An example is arranging jobs.

"Our transition team assists the families in our district with developing job skills for students," Feathers said.

That includes employment at the preschool at Alton Darby and Brown elementary schools and at businesses that partner with the district, such as Lowe's Home Improvement.
