MARC (Moving in to Adult Roles and Communities)

The Marc program is a transition service offered by Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD and is located at the Transition Center Campus at 1849 F. Central Drive. It is an instructional arrangement for students with disabilities ages 18-21 who have completed the academic graduation requirements and are working within the continuum of transition services in order to complete implementation of their Individual Education Plan (IEP.)

Individualized supports for a successful transition to adult life are provided in the areas of.

    • Employment- Students gain work experience by working at a variety of local businesses with whom HEB has an agreement with.
    • Independent living- Students plan, prepare and clean up after a dish once a week.

Each young adult's daily schedule is based upon his or her post-secondary goals, IEP goals, and objectives developed with the collaboration of the student, parents, teachers and adult agencies.


Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District is committed to providing quality transition services which foster independence, develop employability skills, promote self-determination, and prepare the student for integration into their community.
