The Transitions Program

The Wayland High School Transitions Program

What is the Transitions Program? 

The Transitions Program supports students who are returning to school from extended absences.  Often when students are out of school for a long period of time, the transition back into a regular school routine can be difficult.  Students in these situations need a carefully planned transition back into school, that includes extensive close monitoring and academic and emotional support.  The Transitions Program helps students and their families with re-entry and re-integration to school.

How does this program help students?

The Transitions Program offers a variety of services to the students and families of Wayland High School.

          > Emotional support to teens and families

          > Academic assistance

          > Collaboration with teachers to ensure that students can maintain appropriate coursework

          > Communication between student, school personnel, medical professionals, therapists, and other outside providers

How do I know whether or not my child is appropriate for the Transitions Program and with whom can I speak further about the program?

If you have questions about the program itself, and believe your child may need the program, you may call or email your child's guidance counselor directly (508-358-3706).  If you have a student already in the Transitions Program, you may contact James Chiarelli, the Transitions Program Counselor via email or phone at: 508-358-7746.
