Transition Partnership Program (TPP)

The Transition Partnership Program (TPP) was designed to build partnerships between local education agencies (LEAs) and the Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) for the purposes of successfully transitioning student­-DOR consumers into meaningful employment and/or secondary education. Under these contractual agreements, the DOR assigns vocational rehabilitation counselors to be actively involved with the students and TPP. The DOR counselor determines eligibility and provides enhanced vocational rehabilitation services for at least one year prior to the student leaving high school. San Benito High School TPP provides exclusive training and enhanced programming to enable students to achieve employment utilizing community-based instruction, vocational and work­ site training, job placement, and follow-­up services to exiting student­-consumers.
