Those of you who need to travel on the day before (Tuesday, June 18th) will need to find your own lodging at local hotels for Tuesday night. Know that there are limited options in Vernonia but more options about an hour away or less (e.g. Forest Grove, Hillsboro, etc.)
The opening Welcome Session will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. on the 19th. The Summer Academy is scheduled to tentatively conclude by 3:00 p.m. on June 20th (Thursday).
Watch this page for a Participant Agenda coming soon. The primary focus of the 2019 Summer Academy is "YTP GO!" or in others words "Get Outcomes"!
Intended outcomes for the Summer Academy are that you will leave with a practical understanding of:
What YTP and Post School Outcomes (aka PSO) are?
Why YTP is an Outcome-Based Program?; and
How to achieve outcomes by learning stepping stones to employment? Specifically, how IEPs lead to desired outcomes, the IEP/IPE Process, and how IPEs are written to remove barriers to employment?
Attend the 2019 Summer Academy to wrestle with these deep questions!
