About TTAN

Transition Technical Assistance Network


This team is working to support the Governor’s Executive Order (No.15-01) to further improve Oregon’s systems of designing and delivering employment services for students with disabilities. Beginning July 2015, the Transition Technical Assistance Network includes ODE’s Secondary Transition Liaison, eight full-time Transition Network Facilitators, and one Regional Employment Coordinator and Trainer. The Transition Network Facilitator (TNF) will work to support the collaborative efforts of Vocational Rehabilitation and Local Education Agencies in Oregon in the implementation of the Workforce Innovate Opportunity Act and the provision of Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS). The network is in its second year of development.


Some of the goals of the Transition Technical Assistance Network for the 2015-2016 year will include: 

  • Offer technical assistance to educators for students with disabilities who are of transition age. 
  • Develop strategies for successful team facilitation and planning.
  • Continue to develop relationships with community partners such as Vocational Rehabilitation, Developmental Disabilities Service, County Mental Health, family advocacy programs, etc.
  • Implement training and professional development for regional partners on policy and systems change. 
  • Provide support to districts in understanding Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS).
