Page 2 of 2
This form is intended to request the Student Services Plan for potentially eligible students, in
accordance with 34 CFR 361.48(a) and the Vocational Rehabilitation Services Portion of the Unified
State Plan. “Potentially eligible” students are defined as students with disabilities, ages 16 through 21,
who have not yet applied or been found eligible for the vocational rehabilitation program. This is not an
application for vocational rehabilitation services.
The Student Services Plan can include any or all of the five pre-employment transition services: job
exploration counseling, work-based learning, postsecondary enrollment counseling, work readiness
training, and instruction in self-advocacy, depending on the needs and interests of the student. The
Student Services Plan supports students to explore and prepare for employment through career
exploration, work experience, and other foundational skills that assist in achieving workplace success.
FORM COMPLETION INSTRUCTIONS
Complete this form to document that the student is currently enrolled in a recognized education
program and is considered a student with a disability as defined in 34 CFR 361.5(c)(51).
Parent/Guardian contact information and consent are required for students who are less than 18
years of age and not an emancipated minor. Conservator contact information and consent are
required for students with disabilities who are over 18 and have a conservator with relevant authority.
An electronic version of this form is available online at www.dor.ca.gov. For more information on the
requirements for pre-employment transition services, refer to 29 USC sections 705(37) and 733, and
