The Facilities Planning Task Force is currently meeting to address facilities need in our district which includes considering a recommendation for a new space for Community Transitions (CT).
Community Transitions is a Special Education program within Bellingham Public Schools that serves students through the age of 21. CT provides a full continuum of services intended to prepare students with mild to severe disabilities for a successful transition to independent living, employment and/or post-secondary training. Staff, parents and the adult students work as a team to create and nurture partnerships with adult services, college staff and businesses in the local community to identify the best place to maximize each individual student’s potential for success.
Community Transitions currently resides in a wing at Bellingham High School and 80 students attend. The program has outgrown their current space and is looking for a new home. Moving to a new location would provide new opportunities for CT students and open space up in Bellingham High School.
