Program Overview
The Livonia Transition Program is a program for 18-26-year-old special education students who have exited high school with a certificate of completion. It is a blended program where students spend half of their day in the classroom learning daily living skills, job readiness skills and transition goals. The other half of their day is spent at a job site where students have the opportunity to learn job skills in a real-life situation. 

While on the job site, students focus on demonstrating competencies in the Universal Work Skills (essential work traits which are deemed necessary for successful employment). Training conditions are governed by the Department of Labor guidelines. The partnership between businesses and school is facilitated by a teacher from the school. We have relationships with more than 25 local businesses that provide work training for our students. Related instruction, consultation, evaluation and advisory services are supplied by the coordinator. Currently, Livonia Transition Program has a Project SEARCH site at Embassy Suites. Project SEARCH is a one-year program that is designed for students who are exiting school-based services at the completion of the Project SEARCH program.

What does an average day look like?
Morning - Students arrive on campus for their first block of classes.
Mid-day - Students are shuttled to their job sites. Lunch is eaten on-site.

Meet the Principal

Greetings!
It is an honor to introduce myself as the principal of Garfield Skills Center & Livonia Transition Program and to join this extraordinary school community.

Our programs have
dedicated, talented members committed to doing what is in the best interest of our students. I will
continue to put students first and work diligently to ensure their success. I feel very fortunate to be part of these programs and to support the students and families.

My professional background is rooted in special education, leadership, and school psychology. For the past 17 years, I have worked in public education as a leader, school psychologist, intake coordinator, PBIS coach and principal. This is my first year in Livonia Public Schools,
and I look forward to using these collective experiences as your new principal.

In addition to my professional achievements, my greatest accomplishment is my family. I am a
wife to my loving, supportive husband, Allen Feigel, who is also an educator and coach at Churchill High School and a mother to two amazing little boys, Boden (7), and Behren (5). Also,
I have a 41-year-old sister with Down syndrome (Lindsay), who graduated from the Western Wayne Skills Center and continues to reside with my mother in Livonia. As a sibling, I always want what is best for young adults and will work tirelessly to ensure your student has the best possible experiences within our programs.

I am committed to embracing the positive traditions and practices that are already in place while working diligently to ensure success for the future. I believe all students should receive an exemplary education in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning. Together, we can help our students excel and provide them with an education that is second to
none.

My door is always open to you, and I sincerely welcome your input and support. I am excited about all we will accomplish together for our students and look forward to celebrating our collective success this school year.


Kind regards,

Lauren Feigel
