DVR Collaboration 2020-22

Overview

In July 2020, CCTS received a contract award to provide professional development training to the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) and education staff as guided by Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). The overall goal is to increase the availability, accessibility, and coordinated delivery of pre-employment transition services (Pre-ETS) to potentially eligible students with disabilities in Washington.

QuIST Collaboration Workshop

March 16, 2021, 3-5 p.m. PST (rescheduled from March 9)

The Quality Indicators for Secondary Transition (QuIST) is a free program-improvement tool developed by CCTS that enables school districts to self-evaluate their transition services for students with disabilities. It is not used for compliance monitoring. Districts can complete the QuIST using a computer-scored Excel workbook. The workbook includes formulas that auto-calculate the results and display them on a summary scoresheet.

In this DVR-sponsored workshop, DVR and school district personnel will be introduced to the process for completing the QuIST. It is suggested that DVR and school teams come together to learn the QuIST components.

Due to funding, participation is limited to Washington state DVR and school district staff only.

Aligning IEPs and High School and Beyond Plans

May 4, 2021, 3-5 p.m. PDT

The High School and Beyond Plan (HSBP) is a graduation requirement for every student in Washington state. It's a process for students, parents, and teachers to guide students through high school and think about their future. Plans are personalized and designed to help students set, visualize, and work to achieve goals. The IEP has a similar component in the transition plan that has postsecondary goals and transition services to provide the student with skills necessary to reach those goals.

In this DVR-sponsored workshop, the alignment of the HSBP and IEP will be discussed with the focus on best practices.

Due to funding, participation is limited to Washington state DVR and school district staff only.
