We know that families are an important part of the transition planning process. To be a part of this process, it is important for families to understand the new law: Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). This session will provide an explanation of WIOA and the related transition services provided to students by school districts and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
