Project 31

Overview: Project 31 welcomes special education high school transition program 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 is a City College of San Francisco concurrent enrollment program. The goal of Project 31 is to assist special education students transitioning from high school to postsecondary education.

Students may take up to 2 Noncredit courses. Qualified students may take 1 Credit course if they have completed between 120-204 high school credits. If they have over 204 credits, they may take up to 2 Credit courses. Being admitted into a Credit/Noncredit class is contingent on their CCSF placement score, meeting prerequisites, 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 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 transition students. All high schools are targeted.

Application requirements: Principal Consent Forms (and Parent Consent if student is conserved or under 18), IEP, and transcripts (if applying for Credit courses) are required. Incomplete documents will not be processed. Documents are turned into Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS). Documents are reviewed by DSPS and forwarded to Admissions and Records for processing of course registration.

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.
