Pre-Employment Transition Services Implementation Checklist

Click to download Pre-Employment Transition Services Implementation Checklist.

This checklist was developed to assist States with the implementation and provision of pre-employment transition services. States may use this checklist as a guide in organizing required documents and/or as a plan of action moving forward. We have developed the checklist as a fillable word document that may be used electronically, and as such, under the Status column we have inserted a drop-down menu, just click on "Choose an item", and then click on the arrow to select a response for each item in the checklist.


  1. Transition Service Delivery Structure
Status Person(s) Responsible Timeframe For Completion Corresponding Document and Location (where it lives)
In structuring the delivery of transition services, the VR agency must consider the various requirements under the Act. For example, pre-employment transition services provided under section 113 of the Act, and 34 CFR §361.48(a) are available only to students with disabilities. However, transition services provided for the benefit of a group of individuals under section 103(b)(7) of the Act and 34 CFR §361.49(a)(7) may be provided to both students and youth with disabilities. Youth with disabilities who are not students may receive transition-related services identified in an individualized plan for employment (IPE) under section 103(a) of the Act, but may not receive pre-employment transition services because these services are limited to students with disabilities. On the other hand, students with disabilities may receive pre-employment transition services with or without an IPE under section 113 of the Act, or may receive pre-employment transition services and/or transition services under an IPE in accordance with section 103(a)(15) of the Act.
  1. The VR agency can describe their service delivery structure and strategies for serving students with disabilities who are eligible and potentially eligible for pre-employment transition services. [Service delivery will also be outlined in your Policies and Procedures, so you may want to cross-reference Section VIII Transition Policies and Procedures.]

Status Person(s) Responsible Timeframe For Completion Corresponding Document and Location (where it lives)

There are five required activities (most beneficial to a student in the early stages of employment exploration) that are provided directly to eligible or potentially eligible students with disabilities. There are nine authorized activities described in 34 CFR §361.48(a)(3) that VR agencies may implement to improve the transition of students with disabilities from school to postsecondary education or an employment outcome.

Authorized Activities
The "nine authorized" activities - may be provided if reserved funds remain after all required services have been made available to all students with disabilities who need them. [Section 113(c) of the Act and §361.48(a)(3) and implementing regulations]
This section also contains items related to fiscal forecasting which may be cross-referenced with the Sections IX and X.

WINTAC Resource: Moving from Required Pre-employment Transition Services to Authorized Activities

  1. The VR Agency completed a process (e.g., CSNA, fiscal forecasting, or other planning activities) to determine whether funds remain and can share their methodology used to determine the amount of Federal funds that need to be reserved and expended for the provision of the required activities under section 110(d)(1) of the Act, to determine the amount available for the provision of the authorized activities.
       
  1. The VR agency's methodology for assessment of need includes the following:

    • The total number of students with disabilities in the state who are potentially eligible students, and where this number came from;
    • The method used to determine the need for pre-employment transition services;
    • Verification that the required services have been made available all students with disabilities who need them, by including a description of all the ways pre-employment transition services are delivered to students with disabilities that need them, and how students with disabilities that need pre-employment transition services can receive those services;
       
  1. The VR agency has conducted their fiscal forecasting to identify the target amount of reserve funds that will be necessary to provide the required pre-employment transition services to students with disabilities, to include the following:

    • The number of students with disabilities VR is currently providing pre-employment transition services to;
    • Identify the minimum amount required to be reserved and expended for pre-employment transition services (at least 15% of the VR grant allotment);
    • The average cost per student that it cost VR to provide pre-employment transition services this year;
    • The projected number or increased number of students with disabilities VR thinks they will be able to provide pre-employment transition services to this year, based on all the ways VR will provide or arrange for the provision of pre-employment transition services;
    • The average cost per student that VR projects it will cost to provide pre-employment transition services this year;
    • The cost of coordination activities for the year;
    • Show "the math" (the amount VR projects to spend on pre-employment transition services based on the per-student cost projected, added to the number of students VR projects to serve, added to the coordination costs; and subtract that total from the total 15% reserve amount to get the remainder that is available to spend on authorized activities);
    • Identify the amount, if any, available to spend on authorized activities.
       
  1. With funds remaining after all necessary required activities have been made available, identify which authorized activities the VR agency has been able to provide that improve the transition of students with disabilities from school to postsecondary education or an employment outcome; and support the arrangement or provision of the "required" activities.
       
  1. If authorized activities are purchased by the VR agency, a copy of the type of agreement utilized by the agency to provide the authorized services is available.
       

Pre-Employment Transition Coordination Activities
The "four pre-employment transition coordination" activities - must be carried out, and reserve funds may be used to pay for pre-employment transition coordination activities. These four coordination activities may be necessary for arranging and providing direct pre-employment transition services, and are therefore included under the implementation of pre-employment transition services [Section 113(d) of the Act and §361.48(a)(4) and implementing regulations]

  1. The VR agency can describe efforts to engage with partners and education programs to collaboratively provide pre-employment transition coordination activities, including planning activities and joint activities in the four areas specified below:

(1) Attending IEP meetings, when invited

       

(2) Working with the local workforce development boards, one-stop centers, and employers to develop work opportunities for students with disabilities

       

(3) Working with schools to coordinate and ensure the provision of pre-employment transition services

       

(4) Attending person-centered planning meetings for students with disabilities receiving services under title XIX of the Social Security Act, when invited

       

 

  1. Provision of Group Transition Services
Status Person(s) Responsible Timeframe For Completion Corresponding Document and Location (where it lives)
A student or youth with a disability is not required to have applied or been determined eligible for VR services to receive general transition services provided to groups under section 103(b)(7) of the Act and 34 CFR §361.49(a)(7). Therefore, a VR agency may, but is not required to, provide or collect applications from students and youth with disabilities receiving transition services under 34 CFR §361.49(a)(7). These services may be provided in a variety of settings, including classroom, employment, and community-based settings. However, they should be provided in integrated settings to the maximum extent possible to best prepare students and youth with disabilities for competitive integrated employment.

Students and youth with disabilities may continue to receive generalized transition services under this authority while also receiving individualized VR services under an IPE.

Pre-employment transition services may be provided in a group setting to students with disabilities who have not applied or been determined eligible for VR services, as discussed in 34 CFR §361.48(a). However, pre-employment transition services cannot be provided to students with disabilities as a service for groups under section 103(b)(7) of the Act or 34 CFR §361.49(a)(7).

  1. If the VR agency provides services under the "services to groups" authority, the VR agency can describe services provided as group transition services; and how the VR agency provides or coordinates the provision of these services.
       

 

  1. Provision of Individualized Transition Services
Status Person(s) Responsible Timeframe For Completion Corresponding Document and Location (where it lives)

To receive individualized transition services, a youth or student with a disability must be determined eligible for the VR program and have a signed IPE pursuant to section 103(a) of the Act and final 34 CFR §361.48(b).

  1. The VR agency can describe the provision of individualized transition services, including the types of services provided, when and to whom these services are provided, and how they are provided.
       
  1. The agency will describe how all youth with disabilities will have access to the array of transition services the VR agency provides, which may or may not include pre-employment transition services.
       

 

  1. Transition Policies and Procedures
Status Person(s) Responsible Timeframe For Completion Corresponding Document and Location (where it lives)

The VR agency must revise policies and procedures related to the provision of pre-employment transition services to students with disabilities and transition services to students and youth with disabilities to bring them into alignment with the requirements of the Act, as amended by WIOA. Many of the focus areas and action items above regarding pre-employment transition services will help inform the VR agency's policy and procedures outlined in this section.

  1. The VR agency has developed, revised or implemented their policies and procedures to address changes related to pre-employment transition services requirements, including the provision of services to students with disabilities who are potentially eligible for VR services.
       
  1. The VR agency has included in their policy the definition of a student with a disability and a youth with a disability.
       
  1. The VR agency's policies and procedures include information related to referrals for pre-employment transition services, application for VR services, collaborative service provision, service agreements, and documenting, tracking and reporting such services.
       
  1. The VR agency has a policy that directs counselors to ensure students with disabilities determined eligible for the VR program have an IPE in place prior to exiting the school setting.
       
  1. The VR agency's policies and procedures describe the IPE development process for students and youth with disabilities, including the 90-day timeline requirement.
       
  1. The VR agency uses projected IPE goals for students and youth with disabilities; and the policies and procedures outline a process for when projected goals are used and amended.
       
  1. The VR agency has a policy that directs counselors to ensure once determined eligible, any pre-employment transition services the student receives will be listed on the IPE.
       
  1. The VR agencies policies and procedures reflect guidance if a student needs a service that goes beyond the scope of pre-employment transition services, and such additional service is listed on the student's approved IPE, the VR agency will pay for those costs with non-reserved VR funds.
       

 

  1. Internal Controls
Status Person(s) Responsible Timeframe For Completion Corresponding Document and Location (where it lives)

Section 110(d)(1) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Rehabilitation Act), requires States to reserve at least 15 percent of their VR allotments for the provision of pre-employment transition services. The reserved funds must be spent in providing, or arranging for the provision of, pre-employment transition services outlined in section 13 of the Rehabilitation Act to students with disabilities.

VR agencies must ensure they are able to track pre-employment transition services expenditures properly with the reserved funds (preamble Final VR Regulations at 81 FR 55703); and that their internal control processes ensure the accuracy and validity of the data have been implemented.

RSA Resource: RSA: Period of Performance for Formula Grant Awards FAQs
WINTAC Resource: Time Allocation Guide

  1. The VR agency has developed policies and procedures that implement the agency's internal controls regarding the reservation and expenditure of VR grant funds for the provision of pre-employment transition services to ensure the reserve funds are spent in accordance with the statute and regulations, and reported properly on the SF-425.
       
  1. The VR agency's internal controls include reporting procedures for monitoring and tracking the funds spent on purchased services and pre-employment transition services provided directly by VR agency personnel.
       
  1. The VR agency's internal controls include how staff are tracking their time spent providing the required pre-employment transition services, and the coordination activities.
       
  1. The VR agency's internal controls include the process for how pre-employment transition services expenditures are authorized, approved, and paid to vendors.
       

 

  1. Administrative Costs
Status Person(s) Responsible Timeframe For Completion Corresponding Document and Location (where it lives)

Under section 110(d)(2) of the Act and 34 CFR §361.65(a)(3)(ii)(B), funds reserved and expended toward the provision of pre-employment transition services may not be used to pay agency administrative costs associated with the provision of such services. Nothing prevents a State from using regular VR funds to pay agency administrative costs associated with the provision of pre-employment transition services. This provision means that any administrative costs charged to the Federal VR award are not permitted as expenditures to meet the 15 percent reserve, which may only be met with expenditures for the provision of pre-employment transition services either directly through the required activities, or to enhance the provision of such services via the authorized activities.
RSA generally will not require grantees to extract administrative costs that exist within contracts from total contract costs when reporting the cost of the contract as pre-employment transition services expenditures.

  1. The VR agency can describe strategies for tracking expenditures to ensure that administrative costs do not count toward the amount required to be reserved and expended for the provision of pre-employment transition services.
       
  1. The VR agency can describe strategies for tracking administrative cost expenditures to ensure that any administrative expenditures charged to the VR award are not reported as expenditures meeting the reservation requirement for pre-employment transition services.
       
  1. If the VR agency uses fee for service or contracts for the provision of Pre-ets, describe how these costs are allocated toward the funds reserved (While section 110(d)(2) of the Act and §361.65(a)(3)(ii)(B) restricts pre-employment transition services reserve funds from being used to pay for administrative costs associated with the provision of such services or any VR service, RSA has determined that this provision is not applicable to contracts for the direct provision of purchased pre-employment transition services. Therefore, administrative costs associated with the direct provision of required pre-employment transition services purchased through a case service contract, which are reasonable, necessary and allocable to the provision of the required activities, may be paid with reserve funds).
       

 

  1. Tracking and Reporting
Status Person(s) Responsible Timeframe For Completion Corresponding Document and Location (where it lives)

RSA uses the data collected through the RSA-911 to describe the performance of the VR and Supported Employment programs in the Annual Report to the Congress and the President as required by sections 13 and 101(a)(10) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (the Act). RSA also uses these data to assess the performance of the VR program through the calculation of evaluation standards and performance indicators as required by section 106 of the Act, which must be consistent with the common performance accountability measures established under section 116 of title I of WIOA for the core programs of the workforce development system.
