ABOUT THE 18-21 PROGRAM
The 18-21 Program serves 18 to 21 year-old students with disabilities who have met all high school graduation requirements. Students in 18-21 typically receive the majority of their instruction off-campus in community settings. Our goal is to provide students with the skills and resources necessary to live and work as successfully and independently as possible within their community. Students may attend on a part-time or full-time basis as determined by the student's IEP team.
If a student is new to the Blue Valley Schools, has not yet received a high school diploma and you are interested in information about the 18-21 Program, please contact Vicki Vossler at (913) 239-7947 for additional information. If it is determined the student is eligible, you will be directed to the student's home high school to begin the registration process.
All students must register and pay fees through their home high school. This is your official Blue Valley registration.
