Finishing high school can be an exciting time, but it can also bring anxiety about what’s next and how to plan for the future. To assist students with disabilities and their families in planning for life after school, the Prince William/Manassas/Manassas Park Transition Council will host its Annual Transition Fair. This free event will be held on Saturday, March 17, from 12:00 noon–3:30 p. m. at the Edward L. Kelly Leadership Center, 14715 Bristow Rd., Manassas. 

The Transition Fair offers students and parents the opportunity to meet with representatives from private and public agencies that provide a variety of support services to youth and adults with disabilities who face significant changes as they complete their high school careers. Students and parents may also attend information sessions about: 

  • Transition planning; 
  • Medicaid; 
  • Supplemental security income; 
  • Supported employment; 
  • Social security; 
  • Career planning; 
  • Guardianship; 
  • Rehabilitative services; 
  • Special needs estate planning; and 
  • College disability support services. 

All of the information presented will prove helpful to students in the transition planning process. The Transition Fair focuses on students who receive special education services through Prince William County, Manassas City, or Manassas Park Public Schools. 

To register for the fair, call 703.791.8846 (voice) or 703.791.8847 (TDD). 

Accommodations and interpreters can be provided upon request. Requests made after March 2 cannot be guaranteed.
