Waupun Transition House

The Waupun Area
School District
helping high school-aged students with significant intellectual disabilities
transition into society. They purchased an 800 to 900 square foot home close to
the high school to serve as a transition house. District Superintendent Tonya
Olson says special education teachers and staff will work with those students
to accustom them to functioning on their own. The teachers have classes in the
house, but also show the students how to cook, clean, mow the lawn and do other
daily tasks. Olson says they had a meeting with parents whose kids would
benefit from the home and some of them cried tears of joy because the school
district was offering the program. The transition house is for students up to
21 years of age.
