Based upon the following information below, HCM coding has been updated. Please print out and keep it handy as the changes relate to you.
This past Monday, DVR SLT met with our new RSA liaison and had an opportunity to ask some questions on a variety of topics, including WIOA. During this discussion, we received additional information regarding HCM (PTA) coding for PETS.
It was stated during the call that all staff may code their time for both required and authorized activities for Pre-Employment Transition Services. I have included those activities on this webpage.
This drastically widens the activities that staff can code their PETS time to in HCM. According to RSA, we cannot include administrative time such as travel, making copies, doing Purchase Orders, etc.
However, any time that DVR staff participate in any services related to directly providing to students or coordinating services (e.g., teachers, parents, partners, etc.) related to PETS can be counted. For example, talking to school staff about arranging for a soft skills class to take place, working with a partner agency or school-to-plan PETS service offerings will be able to be counted.
Should you have any questions, please send them to your supervisor, who should then compile and forward to me.
