Vocational Rehabilitation and Blind Services (VRBS) contracts with school districts to deliver Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) in high schools. These funds do not replace or reduce the school’s obligation to provide transition services as part of the IDEA.
How to Start a School Contract
- Contact your local Pre-ETS Specialist and set up a time to discuss your school’s needs and transition plans.
- Complete a work plan that details the Pre-Employment Transition Services to be provided and how they will be delivered. The intent of the contract is to increase and add to the existing transition services schools are providing. This is an opportunity to add a new project, new curriculum, expand work experience sites and increase the pre-employment training options for students.
- Review and complete the contract and submit to Tammy Hogan, Pre-ETS Bureau Chief, for approval. Your local Pre-ETS Specialist will be able to assist you with any questions.
- Begin Pre-Employment Transition Services. Invoicing and payment take place at the end of each calendar quarter.
