Project 31

Overview: Project 31 welcomes special education high school students ages 18-22. Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), transition planning from school to adult life begins during high school. IDEA is intended to prepare students to make the transition from the world of high school to the world of adulthood. Transition considers such areas as postsecondary education or vocational training, employment, independent living, and community participation. Project 31: DSPS is a City College of San Francisco concurrent enrollment program. The goal of Project 31: DSPS is to assist special education students transition from high school to post secondary education.

Students may take 1 credit or non-credit class if they have less than 120 high school credits. If they have over 120 credits they may take up to 2 courses. Being admitted into a credit / non-credit class is contingent on their CCSF placement score and space availability. A student wishing to take a credit course must have a 2.0 high school grade point average.

Project 31 students cannot register on-line, receive priority registration, or take physical education courses. All students must follow the CCSF matriculation process. Project 31 students are not allowed a matriculation exemption.

Target Audience: SFUSD special education students. All high schools are targeted.

Application requirements: Principal and Parent Consent Forms, IEP, and transcripts are required. Incomplete documents will not be processed. Documents are turned into Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS). Documents are reviewed and stamped to allow Admissions and Records to identify high school students as Project 31 students. DSPS does not register or approve the course selection, this is left to Admissions and Records.

Special education students are asked to make an appointment in advance to turn in documents and arrange classroom or test accommodations. Students can call (415) 452-5481 to make an appointment at the Ocean DSPS office or call (415) 561-1001 to make an appointment at the John Adams DSPS office.
