Bi-Weekly Transition Forum
GVRA will be hosting a Transition forum that will walk parents, students, and special education professionals through the process of getting connected with GVRA and further details for Pre-Employment Transition Services and Transition Services through GVRA.
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) amends the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and now requires vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies to set aside at least 15% of their federal funds to provide “pre-employment transition services” to “Students with Disabilities who are eligible or potentially eligible for VR services.”
