Simi Valley Unified School District Welcomes New Federal Grant Program!

We are pleased to announce that the Simi Valley Unified School District's Transition Partnership Program (TPP) is launching this week.   

The Transition Partnership Program builds partnerships between local education agencies and the Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) for the purposes of successfully transitioning high school students with disabilities into meaningful employment and/or post-secondary education.

Statewide there are more than 100 Transition Partnership Programs administered through contractual agreements with school districts and county offices of education. Under these agreements, the DOR assigns vocational rehabilitation counselors to be actively involved with the students and local education agencies. The DOR counselor determines eligibility and provides enhanced vocational rehabilitation services for at least one year prior to the student's graduation. The local education agency provides exclusive training and enhanced vocational programming to enable students to achieve employment utilizing community-based instruction, vocational and work-site training, job placement, and follow-up services upon graduation.

Facts

  • Forty percent of the DOR's transition-aged students-consumers are currently served by Transition Partnership Programs.
  • One out of two Transition Partnership Program consumers is successfully employed.
  • Over 50% of the Transition Partnership Program consumers served are Black, Hispanic, multiracial or Asian American; groups that have been historically underserved.
  • As of 2015, Transition Partnership Program consumers constituted over 20% of the DOR's total successful placements.

Bill Perry, Job Developer/Job Coach, joined the District on August 6, 2018. The District's TPP program is expected to serve 32 Simi Valley  School's students with special needs once the program gets going. Mr. Perry can be reached at 805 306-4500 ext.4312 or at william.perry@simivalleyusd.org.
