Can a student still in high school get a job through pre-employment transition services?

Pre-employment transition services are pre-vocational services. They are not intended for job placement. They are intended to prepare students for competitive, integrated employment in the community after they leave high school.

DVR is still focused on post-secondary (i.e. after school district services) employment outcomes. DVR’s expectation is that students receiving individual DVR services with pre-employment transition activities will continue to work with their DVR counselors to develop specific employment goals for post-high school life.

To emphasize: Students who have open cases with DVR who are receiving pre-employment transition services as part of their Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) should move to a more-focused employment goal after they leave high school.
