Welcome Back to the TIP!
Contributed by Mary Kampa, Post School Outcomes Coordinator

The Transition Improvement Plan (TIP) is an effective transition improvement planning tool that guides individual users and other school or district teams through an assessment and planning process using the National Predictors of Post School Success with a review of district Indicator 14 Post School Outcomes. The Predictors represent a variety of evidence-based transition practices in which students participate to increase their likelihood of entering postsecondary education and high quality employment following their exit from high school. Through the TIP, users can access lesson plans, evidence-based practices and other high quality transition resources.

Many educators participated in Transition Improvement Plan (TIP) training during the 2013-14 school year, and trainings will again be offered in each of the CESAs during the 2014-15 school year. Please check the TIG Calendar of Events for a training in your area.

We encourage you to return to your 2013-14 TIP to review the tasks developed during the 2013-14 school year and continue your planning efforts this year. The TIG staff are available to provide assistance in developing and implementing transition goals, and welcome you to “Request a Training” or participate in one or more of the many professional development opportunities offered this year.

If you completed the TIP self-assessment during the 2013-14 school year, we welcome you to visit the TIG website again and complete a second Predictor Self-Assessment. Starting in October 2014, a new report will allow users to directly compare 2013-14 self-assessment results with 2014-15 results, and you will be able to create a TIP report that can be added to your professional development portfolio. Webcasts will be offered in November and December for returning users. 

Additionally, new transition resources are being added to the TIG Services and Resources, and will be connected to the Predictors.  Please make plans to visit the TIG website this year to view the following and other resources!

Youth Apprenticeship Program Creates an Open Door for Students Desiring Work Based Learning
Contributed by Brian Kenney, TIG Southern Regional Coordinator

Employment | Transition Improvement Grant (TIG)Wisconsin's Youth Apprenticeship (YA) program is part of a statewide School-to-Work initiative between the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and the State of Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD). It is designed for high school students who are entering their junior or senior year of high school who want hands on learning in an occupational area at a worksite along with classroom instruction. This program integrates school-based and work-based learning to instruct students in employability and occupational skills defined by Wisconsin industries. This one or two year elective program combines academic and technical instruction with mentored on-the-job learning.

Students who enter into Wisconsin’s YA Program complete a training agreement that has specific requirements of the employer, the youth apprentice, and the school district. Part of this agreement includes a requirement that students are paid for their apprenticeship training. Students choose a program area based on a combination of factors that include age-appropriate assessments, student preferences and interests and career exploration outcomes. The choice of which particular program area a student engages in is guided by the student’s Post Secondary Transition Plan (PTP).

The most difficult aspects of the Wisconsin Youth Apprenticeship Program in terms of placing students with disabilities are the connections to the designated individual(s) in your district that monitor the program, and establishing connections with the employers in your community that help you create the work site. The opportunities this program presents are worth the time it may take to get them set up. Some helpful strategies and ideas are listed below to help keep doors open for your students in terms of creating action based PTP’s.

  1. Connect with your school counselors so they can help you identify a key contact person in your school district. Invite that person to attend the IEP meeting so that open lines of communication can be created in regards to the opportunities of the program and if they are right for the student.
  2. You can also connect with the regional coordinator that represents your area in regards to apprenticeships for youth. They can help you with required documents as well as guide you through set up and maintenance of a program for your school district. The Department of Workforce Development has a webpage that lists all 31 regional consortiums that exist in Wisconsin and a contact person who can help you. They have a vested interest in the program so get them involved as well. Here is a quick link to all of the regional coordinators in Wisconsin.
  3. The PTP process begins in Wisconsin at age 14. Therefore students begin carving out their postsecondary plans at an early age. This could be the beginning of a possible youth apprenticeship journey and the process can be well documented, measured and planned. By the time a student is in 10th grade, they could be looking at the apprenticeship packet and application materials to prepare for their future. The PTP process occurs annually as part of the IEP and the student can begin to look more deeply at the opportunities this program presents.
  4. Incorporate transition services into the PTP that directly tie into the apprenticeship opportunities, especially if age appropriate assessment data you have gathered is guiding the student towards a potential youth apprenticeship. Many of the transition services drop-down options within the PTP system will correlate directly to the Wisconsin Youth Apprenticeship Program. Correctly identifying the right transition services early on will only enhance your chances of successful apprenticeship placement.
  5. Establish a point of contact within your local visitors & convention bureau. hey may be able to assist you by providing detailed information regarding area employers as well as contact information.
  6. Meeting with an employer to ultimately finalize a student youth apprenticeship is no easy process and happens in stages. One suggestion might be to ask to take a tour of a potential job site. This is something many businesses love to do since they get to showcase what they do. This also leaves room for dialogue and question and answer time. You can observe things at the site and see how many youth might already be employed there. Look for friendly staff and ongoing mentoring situations. You will get a good feel for what an employment site is like after a good tour. From there possibly look at setting up future job shadows and possibly begin slowly introducing the employer to students. These students can then look at submitting video resumes to the employer showcasing their abilities and skills. The ultimate climax to this hard work and relationship building is the interview. Start with earning the employers trust and things can really develop from there.
  7. Collaborate with outside agencies. This is also part of the PTP process and agency involvement could be crucial for a youth apprenticeship. You are looking for what kinds of supports and services the agency can provide. Some agencies can help support you with transportation, job coaching, wage reimbursement or job related skill building (interview skills, soft skills and social skills).

Wisconsin Youth Apprenticeship Program is a great opportunity to combine those academic skills within your high school directly tied to the apprenticeship clusters, with real-world training opportunity that provides students paid employment. The Transition Improvement Grant (TIG) will be hosting various webinars throughout the school year in the area of work based learning. Stay tuned to our TIG Calendar of Events for more information.

Starting the School Year on a Culturally Responsive Foot!
Contributed by Jen Bourget, TIG Urban Transition Coordinator

Transition Improvement Grant (TIG)Cultural Responsiveness is a term that has been around for decades in relationship to educators, classrooms, family engagement, and schools. However, there is not just ONE definition for Cultural Responsiveness. This term encompasses diverse backgrounds in relationship to languages, customs, traditions, socio-economic status, racial identities, different personalities, sexual orientation, individual strengths, and our own subconscious or conscious biases. The list could go on forever. America is becoming more of a melting pot than ever and that means shaking things up in the classrooms, schools, and the community in general. 

As the school year begins I challenge you to think about your incoming students and what their diverse backgrounds can bring to your classroom or educational setting. Think about each student’s strengths and how to build on these interests to provide meaningful instruction and hold them to high standards. According to Dr. Carl A. Grant, "Being Culturally Responsive starts with looking in the mirror." Culturally Responsive practices for the classroom or community:

  • Build respectful relationships – Don’t be afraid to ask questions to find out why a student or another adult is acting or speaking the way they are. Be willing to answer questions about your own behaviors or language. This can be a good way to teach acceptance and tolerance of differences.
  • Don’t assume you already know – It is human nature to see a person or watch a situation unfold and make assumptions about it. Our subconscious biases can also impact how we interact with our students.
  • Embrace history – We all have a history. Where did our ancestors come from and what were their struggles, values, beliefs? What did their family structure look like? Our history impacts how we live today and interact with the world around us. Our histories helped shaped our own biases.
  • Provide many opportunities to learn new material and show background knowledge – When creating a syllabus or class expectations, think about students in the past and how or why they may have struggled. What are some routines, procedures, or strategies that can be implemented and modeled to help students be more successful in the classroom? For example, by high school all students should know how to take notes. Reality is not all students can create an outline for organized notes by high school. Set aside time to model taking notes on important lessons or concepts throughout the unit.
  • Discuss multiple perspectives – Every story has at least two sides. Role playing different perspectives can help students understand how these differences can impact a situation and the decisions or actions that are carried out. For example, the perspective of an employee can be very different from the perspective of the employer. How do we recognize these differences and have respectful conversations about expectations?

By implementing some, or all, of these practices in the beginning of the year, imagine what can occur in your classroom by the end of the school year!

Kick Off the School Year as Self-Advocates: 5 Activities Students Can Do!
Contributed by Brenda Swoboda, TIG Western Regional Coordinator

Self-Advocacy | Transition Improvement Grant (TIG)Welcome back to another exciting and successful school year! Schools all over Wisconsin tackle self-advocacy instruction in so many ways but there are some shared common threads that can be easily implemented each day. Projects, supports and resources can be an great way to get new ideas. Here are a few tips and strategies to embed self-advocacy instruction into the day to day culture of your classroom to kick off the school year. 

  1. Looking for a great back to school project that will develop self-advocacy skills? How about having your students create a vision board, set goals for the year, and share with their peers, school staff, parents, etc.
  2. Have students create their own accommodation cards and help them start the discussion on their own, with your support, about what they need in their regular education classes. Check out these two samples courtesy of Holmen High School and Sauk Prairie High School
  3. Have a student who loves to speak in front of groups? Have him/her attend one of your in-service or faculty meetings to liven things up! Depending on the topic, here is one example of a fantastic video to share with staff that is equipped with a powerful message or two. Click here to watch this video.
  4. Including your paraprofessional staff, especially when they are supporting students in regular education, can be empowering for both the student and paraprofessional. Have the student and staff member sit down and set an advocacy goal to work on in the class they share and come up with a way to monitor it.
  5. Show students this fun video created by high school students on speaking up for themselves and getting involved with their Postsecondary Transition Plan (PTP)! Have students come up with a plan on how they will participate in their IEP this year.

Here is to a fabulous year doing what you do ... TEACHING and creating advocates in the process!

Transition Improvement Planning Tool and Indicator 14 Post School Outcomes Survey
Contributed by Jenny Jacobs, TIG Post School Outcomes Outreach

PSO Predictors | Transition Improvement Grant (TIG)During the 2013-2014 school year teachers from all over the state participated in a review of their district’s Indicator 14 Post School Outcomes data and then rated their classroom or district transition activities using the National Predictors of Post School Success. For most teachers, this was their first exposure to the Predictors. Individuals or district teams then had the opportunity to develop a Transition Improvement Plan. Many teachers planned on working with building level teams once they returned to their district in order to reach the most students possible with research-based transition programming. Some are incorporating this work into their student/school learning objectives for the school year. The 2014 Indicator 14 Post School Outcomes Survey was the first survey year in which all districts in DPI Procedural Compliance Self-Assessment were given the opportunity to have educators trained as interviewers to conduct the survey on behalf of their district. Forty-two school districts out of 78 districts chose to train staff to conduct the interviews, representing over 75% of the 2014 exiters. The remaining districts elected to have St. Norbert College Strategic Research Institute conduct the survey at no cost to the district. Another thirteen districts in the state elected to contact former students to conduct the Post School Outcomes Survey in a non-monitoring year.

Educators received a $75 stipend for participating in a 90-minute interviewer training, $20 (monitoring year) or $15 (non-monitoring year) for a successfully completed survey, and $5 for exiters that were attempted but could not be contacted successfully. Many districts plan to participate in the PSO survey annually to track their transition planning efforts.

The Post School Outcomes Survey window for the 2014 survey year is coming to a close in early September. Statewide results for Indicator 14 will be available in mid-November.

Jenny Jacobs and Mary Kampa, Transition Improvement Grant staff, will be scheduling full-day trainings at all the CESAs across the state on the Transition Improvement Planning tool. Training opportunities for the Transition Improvement Planning Tool are posted on the Transition Improvement Grant website at www.WiTIG.org. Additionally, districts can Request a Training for a no-cost, in-district review of district outcomes with Jenny or Mary through the TIG website.
