The MBUSD CHOICE Transition Program is a Manhattan Beach Unified School District initiative for individuals with special education needs. The program aims to address long-term goals in the areas of community, healthy living, opportunity, independence, career, and emotional social well-being.
The program was established in 2015 by the MBUSD special education department to provide students with in-district options for federally mandated special education transition services. The program provides life skills and vocational training for 18-to-22-year-olds with neurodisorders who are enrolled in the program.
The booster club for the MBUSD Choice program is a sub-organization of the MBX Foundation.
