WV Student Transition to Employment Project

West Virginia

State Policies & Initiatives: 


“The Student Transition to Employment (STEP) Project is designed to train special education teachers and aides to become vendors with the WV Division of Rehabilitation Services (WVDRS). Working in close partnership with the WVDRS School Counselor, this unique project allows for individuals with disabilities who are graduating from high school to receive job placement and training from the teacher or aide who worked with them throughout their high school careers. The purpose of STEP is to provide a more seamless transition from school to work for students with disabilities… STEP was made possible thanks to funding received from the WV Developmental Disabilities Council and WVDRS.”
