• The Albert Lea Transitions Program is for students with disabilities who are between the ages of 18-21 and have completed their 12th-grade year at Albert Lea High School. This program offers a functional and vocational focus of skills necessary for increased independence at home, in the workplace, and in the community.

    Students who participate will spend their day at Brookside Learning Center in a combination of work skills and life skills training. If a student already has a competitive job or they are ready to work in a community-based setting, their schedule will be adjusted to accommodate work.

    The Albert Lea Transitions Program is part of Albert Lea High School and will provide students with experiences beyond the high school setting. Some activities at Brookside may include: facilitating the computer lab, using the lunchroom facilities, as well as using the gym and walking path during leisure time.

    Students will graduate from the program and receive their high school diploma by either successfully completing their Individual Education Plan (IEP) goals and objectives or by reaching the age of 21.
