Transition and Post-Secondary Preparation (TAPP)

Students being considered for the TAPP program must meet the following requirements:

  • Eligible for special education and have a current IEP.
  • The IEP team has determined the TAPP program is the appropriate setting to meet the students academic and post-secondary needs.

Examples of individual learning opportunities include: visiting colleges, exploring employment, applying for employment, preparing for or taking a driver's test, opening a savings account, volunteering, scheduling or attending health care appointments, meeting with health professionals, maintaining a personal calendar, obtaining a MN state ID, and completing a rental agreement.

The TAPP program is available to a limited number of students in order to provide a supportive atmosphere focused on graduation. Transportation to and from the TAPP program is provided by the White Bear Lake Area School District. Lunch is available on-site. TAPP classroom hours are 9:15 am to 2:15 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

We're Flexible! Programming is determined by the Individual Education Program (IEP) team to best meet each student's educational needs.
