WIOA Public Forum - California's State Plan

The  <http://www.doleta.gov/wioa/> Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
(WIOA) brings significant opportunity to improve services for individuals
with disabilities, especially youth and students with disabilities.  WIOA
authorizes federal employment and training programs. It is designed to help
individuals acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for today's economy
and connect employers to the skilled workers they need. There have been no
greater changes to the law affecting our programs since the 1992
Rehabilitation Act amendments.

Please join the California Department of Rehabilitation in a public forum to
share information and collect feedback from our partners on changes under
WIOA.  This public forum will give you an opportunity to respond to
questions that will assist DOR in identifying opportunities where we can
collaborate with our partners to assist more Californians with disabilities
in going to work.  We look forward to discussing topics such as the newly

.       Submission of a single, unified/combined State Plan inclusive of
four core programs, including Vocational Rehabilitation, by the California
Workforce Investment Board.  

.       Common performance measures for adults and youth across core

.       Measurement of the effectiveness of core programs in serving

.       Separate assessment of the needs of youth and students with
disabilities for transition and pre-employment transition services.  

In the next few days be on the lookout for questions that we will forward to
help frame our conversation with you!

We look forward to hearing your ideas and recommendations.
