For those of you attending the WIOA conference, you may want to check out the following information prior to the meeting:

Dear Colleagues,

On August 13, 2015, the Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education, in collaboration with the Department’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, and the Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services, released a program memorandum entitled, Vision for the One-Stop Delivery System under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  The program memorandum lays out the vision for the one-stop delivery system under WIOA, highlights characteristics the Departments believe contribute to a high-quality one-stop delivery system, and provides links to key technical assistance resources to support states and local areas as they integrate this vision into their system.

The Departments encourage states to adopt this vision and build it into the policies and procedures related to the establishment and management of the one-stop delivery system. 

Thank you,

Cheryl L. Keenan
