Rhode Island Secondary Transition and Employment First
Welcome to Rhode Island Secondary Transition and Employment First
In order to assist Local Educational Agencies in meeting the Secondary Transition requirements, the Rhode Island Department of Education supports four Regional Transition Centers throughout the state. The services provided through the RTCs include service to public, non-public, and charter schools serving youth eligible under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) and work in partnership with adult service agencies, higher education institutions, training programs, and parent advocacy organizations serving young adults with disabilities.
Rhode Island Employment First
Rhode Island Employment First was founded on the beliefs that everyone can work and everyone has the right to earn a living wage at a job that fits their talents, skills, and interests. We want all people – regardless of ability – to be able to achieve their personal dreams of success and earn the respect they deserve.
Rhode Island Employment First supports and promotes practices in local education agencies and with partner agencies that support students with intellectual/developmental disabilities in exiting the public education system to post-secondary education, training, and/or work in integrated settings.

"Why teach #SelfDetermination?"
A student's IEP meeting is the perfect place for them to practice and give them confidence.
