Students Succeed in Life with Pre-Employment Transition Services

Are Your Alaska Students Eligible for Tuition Reimbursement?

Brightways Learning is a Certified Rehabilitation Provider for Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) program through the Alaska Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).

Pre-ETS is for students ages 14-21 with disabilities who are on an IEP, 504 Plan, or are “potentially eligible” for DVR services. Students are “potentially eligible” for DVR if they have difficulties learning, difficulties with attention, or are challenged in an emotional or behavioral way. This could also include kids who have been through treatment, or involved in foster care or juvenile justice. These students do not have to be identified by the school district for special education services.

Brightways Learning provides Phlight Clubs and other youth-development services that help all students increase resilience and social & emotional skills that help them succeed in school, work and life. Pre-ETS funding can offset the cost of Phlight Clubs through tuition reimbursement of $500 per eligible student.
