Grants and Contracts Details


This agreement is to continue provision of technical assistance and training for school district personnel participating in the Community Based Work Transition Program (CBWTP). The CBWTP is designed to provide a positive beginning in the world of work for special education students during their last two years of high school. It is for secondary school age students with significant disabiijties who need support for exploring potential careers, pursuing challenging work experiences and maintaining employment within their communities. Currently there are 96 participating school districts. The program offers a vocational alternative that would not otherwise exist. As a result of transition emphasis in both KERA and IDEA, there has been a great increase in school district interest in this program. The program has expanded from approximately 27 districts participating in 1987, to the current 96. DVR has agreed to cover the majority of the approximate $280,220 in support costs ifKDE contributes state dollars so DVR can access additional federal matching funds to help offset the higher cost to DVR.
