Oregon Supported Employment Services Department of Education Guidance

Oregon

“This guidance document is provided for special education directors, secondary special education teachers, administrators, and transition specialists. The Settlement Agreement for the Lane v. Brown case was approved in December 2015. A portion of the Settlement Agreement deals with transition services, and it provides that ODE shall require that the transition planning process include information about, and provide opportunities to experience, Supported Employment Services in Integrated Employment Settings for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). The Office of Developmental Disability Services (ODDS) and the and Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (VR) makes Supported Employment Services available to Oregon students who are found eligible to receive services, and ODE issues this guidance so that district IEP teams will take steps to inform themselves and others, including transition-age individuals and their families, of these services.”
