Subject - Education Resource Guide for Students and Families Release

Effective Date

The Education Resource Guide for Students and Families is a new tool and does not replace an existing process or guidance tool.


As part of the training grant Value Stream Mapping exercise a major recommendation was to provide clear guidance and materials to DVR staff, consumers and families about education, training and choices. The group developed a tool, which is intended to be a comprehensive approach to support a DVR consumer at all stages of the DVR process and in all stages of participation in an educational program.

Design and Use of the Tool

The guide has been approved by the Policy Academy, the DVR Senior Leadership team, the START team and the Training Grant VSM group.


The guide will be presented at the Study Hall scheduled for June 28th 10-11 AM.

There is in-person training planned to occur over the summer in each WDA planned staff meetings. The training will be provided by a member of the workgroup and the WDA Director. During that training time information will also be shared about summer school, exceptions, and resources for school accommodations, when to select "additional living expenses" and Approval for Private and Out-of-State school.

Training Grant VSM Policy Workgroup:

Questions can be directed to your WDA Director or any member of the workgroup.
