    Vocational Education/Transitional Planning Program (Voc Ed/TPP)


    Welcome to Vocational Education/Transitional Planning Program! In TPP, the students will focus on transitioning out of high school. The course will assist in formulating a plan to be completed after high school. The students will have daily seat work, projects, presentations, and will be required to take notes. Parents will be kept informed regarding important dates that may be of interest to you and your student.

    In order to ensure success for your student, it is important that lines of communication are open. Please feel free to call, write, or email me anytime, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
