​​The person-centered planning process will be implemented through the use of a Personal Outcome Measure Assessment.  All teachers, school personnel and HSS staff will complete training in Secondary Transition: Student-Centered Transition Planning, developed by The Iris Center at Vanderbilt University.  Coaches/mentors will be responsible for assisting the apprentices' with implementing their personal plan, implementing any necessary accommodations, breaking down tasks on a job, and learning to navigate/access public transportation.  Building Futures will also utilize the Microcredential Learning Management System, a resource through the ROE, which would provide an online certification in specific fields, increasing marketability of the apprentice.  Transportation training will be provided through the Local Transportation Monroe Randolph Transit.
