Tuesday's Transition Tips

Tuesday's Transition Tips

yellow post it note with Tuesday's Transition Tips for Teachers is a weekly email for teachers, administrators, parents, counselors, and vocational rehabilitation staff. "Tip" topics include quality and compliant Transition IEPs, transition assessments, drop-out prevention strategies, work-based learning, academic and life skill instruction, family involvement, working with Vocational Rehabilitation Services and much, much more.

Current Tip

Before we let you go off to your well-earned vacations, we have a couple of transition bonuses for those of you still in your classrooms. 

We’ve updated Indiana Diploma Decisions and added it to the resources on the Indiana Secondary Transition Resource Center website. With new information on diplomas, the Certificate of Completion, requirements, graduation pathways, transition portfolios and more, the 2019 edition will be helpful for you as well as your students and their families. Share the link with them:

Indiana Diploma Decisions

We recognize that we may miss some of our transition teachers this late in the year, but we thought it important to send it out anyway, in the event that some of you may be working with students and families over the summer.  We promise to send out Indiana Diploma Decisions again in August!

And one more thing! Save the date!  Through its Benefits Information Network, the Center on Community Living and Careers trains benefits counselors around the state about issues pertaining to Social Security benefits and work incentives, health care, housing, and more. Typically, the training we do is for our certified BIN liaisons, but we also offer a 2-day, information session (non-certified) to provide teachers, school counselors, families, and others with in-depth information about SSI, SSDI, redetermination at age 18, and other benefits and work incentives. Understanding this information will help you guide transition students who are working or those who are preparing to work. 

We’re offering two information sessions this year: August 19-20 and October 14-15.  Both are in Indianapolis.  We’ll remind you in early August when Tuesday Tips resume, but in the meantime watch for registration information on our Benefits Information Training page.  Scroll down to “Social Security and Work Incentives Information Workshop.”

 

Have a wonderful, relaxing, fun-filled summer!
