CMS hosts Transition Fair for students, parents

Throughout the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School system, there are about 500 middle and high school students with special needs.

These students are prepared and given the tools they may need to succeed after high school, but it can still be a challenging transition for parents and students.

But on Thursday, students and their parents will have the opportunity to come together for the 15th annual Transition Fair from 4:30 to 7 p.m. in the East Mecklenburg High School cafeteria.

At the exhibit-style fair, there will be about 30 agencies, colleges and local businesses available to share resources and answer questions.
