Transition Network Facilitators

The Transition Technical Assistance Network (TTAN) jointly funded by VR and ODE; continues the work to further improve Oregon’s systems of designing and delivering employment services for students with disabilities. The Transition Network Facilitators (TNF) and Pre-ETS/TNF Support Specialists work to support the collaborative efforts of Vocational Rehabilitation, Developmental Disability Services, Employment First Teams, and Local Education Agencies in Oregon in the implementation of the Workforce Innovate Opportunity Act (WIOA) and the provision of Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-E.T.S.). The TTAN has established relationships with community partners to implement training and professional development for educators and agency staff on policy and systems change.
