Evergreen Transition Program
Interlake High School
16245 NE 24th Street
Bellevue, WA 98008
We collaborate with students, families, caregivers, community partners, state agencies, and employment vendors. We are committed to recognizing each student’s unique strengths and abilities while allowing them to make decisions through self-determination. We realize the challenges associated with transitioning into adulthood can be overwhelming. We strive to support and empower students, families and caregivers to be prepared and successful for the future.
In accordance with Washington Administrate Code (WAC) and the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA), the Bellevue Evergreen Transition Program strives to prepare young adults (18-21) with disabilities, who have not yet graduated from high school, to lead a fulfilling future with positive post-secondary outcomes. The program is based on the individual student’s needs, while taking into account their strengths, preferences and interests.
While in the program, Evergreen staff help connect students (and families) with important agencies that will help support long-term services, such as DVR (Department of Vocational Rehab), DDA (Developmental Disabilities Administration, formerly known as DDD), and DSHS (Department of Social & Health Services). Students who meet DDA eligibility during their final year in the program have the opportunity to participate in King County’s School-2-Work Program (STW). Learn more…
