The Community Work Transition Program (CWTP) with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) and with the Office for the Blind in collaboration with the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), Human Development Institute (HDI) and Local Education Agencies (LEA) are statewide programs designed to provide Pre Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) and Individualized Transition Services to students who are potentially eligible or eligible for services with OVR or OFB. Potentially eligible students are all students with disabilities, with Individual Learning Program (IEP) or 504 Plan or documented disability, including those who have not applied or been determined eligible for OVR services. Eligible students are students with disabilities, with an IEP or 504 Plan and documented disability, determined eligible for OVR services and meets the Order of Selection, Category 1, eligible individuals who have the most significant disabilities. Student must meet at least 4 priority categories. An OVR or OFB counselor determines the priority category based on how the individual’s ability to work is limited.

The services provided through the CWTP will provide transition aged students experiences and exposure to a variety of careers and job ready prior exiting high school.
