1.4 SEAL Preparation

1.4.1 SEAL Planning

Before SEAL services are provided to VR participants, the Board must:

  • identify points of contact to ensure orderly coordination and communication between the Board and VR staff;
  • identify participating employers and develop worksites;
  • coordinate with VR contacts to conduct outreach and recruitment; and
  • develop local processes and strategies to support and facilitate ongoing coordination and communication between the Board, its subcontractors, VR staff, schools, parents, and students.

All SEAL planning activities must be documented and sent to APPO@twc.texas.gov as a part of Section 1.4.2. Program Description.  

1.4.2 Program Description

Each Board must submit a SEAL – 1: Program DescriptionMS Word to TWC by March 1 of each year. The program description must:

  • indicate whether the Board will provide Work Readiness Training;
  • specify the curriculum and total number of hours for Work Readiness Training if the Board will provide it;
  • identify the single hourly wage that VR participants will receive for the paid work experience and include the cost of other associated and necessary costs for the paid work experience; 
  • indicate that required planning activities are documented; and
  • identify a Board SEAL coordinator, payroll provider, work readiness trainer, and staff responsible for establishing worksite placements.

1.4.3 Outreach and Recruitment

VR counselors in local VR offices will identify current VR participants who may be appropriate for the SEAL program and initiate the referral process to the Boards using the SEAL – 2: Referral FormMS Word

If available slots for the program are not filled, Boards must work collaboratively with the local VR staff to plan, identify, and recruit SEAL candidates. Boards may include out-of-school students funded by WIOA Title I in SEAL after filling all VR-funded slots.
Boards may develop outreach materials or utilize promotional materials provided by TWC to share information about the SEAL program. VR staff can assist Boards in ensuring that all outreach and recruitment materials are available in formats accessible to students with disabilities. 

If any outreach materials or activities contain personal identifying information about current VR participants, the Board is responsible for ensuring confidentiality and securing required releases of information.

1.4.4. SEAL Worksite Development, Orientation, and Training

Boards are responsible for identifying, recruiting, and developing employment opportunities and worksites in the public and private sectors for paid work experience placements. As part of this responsibility, the Board must orient the employer supervisor and/or manager to their responsibilities, which include:

  • modeling expectations;
  • giving clear, detailed, and repeated directions;
  • communicating expectations for job performance, behavior, and social interactions;
  • explaining consequences for inappropriate behavior;
  • discussing progress and improvements in performance with both the VR participant and contractor;
  • teaching skills needed for successful job performance; and
  • communicating regularly with both the VR participant and the Board.

Board efforts to develop work experience opportunities must target high-growth occupations, skilled trades, and other high-demand occupations in the local workforce development area. As the area job market grows or changes, Boards are encouraged to provide work experiences that enable a greater number and variety of career choices for the VR participants. SEAL Candidates

In addition to students who are current VR participants, candidates for SEAL can also include potentially eligible students who have not applied and been determined eligible for VR services but meet the definition of Student with a Disability as established by WIOA.

1.4.5 Documenting SEAL Candidate Eligibility

VR staff will determine eligibility for participation in SEAL and/or for other VR-funded services. Boards must work closely with VR staff to provide necessary documentation for any Board-referred participants.
Boards may co-enroll students and enter their information into The Workforce Information System of Texas (TWIST) if the Board decides to provide additional non-VR services to the students, provided that those services are funded through other sources available to the Board.

1.5 SEAL Services

1.5.1 Service Description

Boards must provide the following services to SEAL VR participants:

  • pre-employment work readiness training and preparation for the work experience placement, unless the Board chooses not to provide this training;
  • work experience to help VR participants gain familiarity with the workplace environment and develop transferable job skills; and
  • paid compensation for time worked on the job.

1.5.2 Staff Qualifications

Boards must review the qualifications and experience of Board and contractor staff who will provide Work Readiness Training to ensure appropriate knowledge, skills, and abilities regarding instructional techniques, working with youth, and methods for appropriately matching a student with a disability to a work site.
Staff working directly with SEAL VR participants must have:

  • at least a high school diploma or GED diploma; and
  • a varied and successful work history.

It is preferred but not required that these staff also have experience working with people with disabilities.

Boards must either subcontract SEAL functions to a third party or meet minimum staffing levels.  

1.5.3 Work Readiness Training

Work Readiness Training may occur before or during the paid work experience component.

Students participating in the SEAL program may choose whether to participate in Work Readiness Training. The student’s preference will be documented by the VR counselor on the SEAL – 2: Referral FormMS Word.

The Board may choose whether to provide Work Readiness Training. If the Board does not provide the training, the Board must document the decision within the SEAL – 1: Program DescriptionMS Word and notify VR staff. If a Board chooses not to provide Work Readiness Training, the Board will not be paid for the Work Readiness Training deliverable. 

If the Board provides Work Readiness Training, the Board must offer between six to ten hours of training, covering the following topics:

  • Workplace Basics (such as transportation, paycheck basics, and timekeeping)
  • Professional Conduct and Employer Expectations
  • Communication and Teamwork
  • Decision-Making and Problem-Solving
  • Timesheet Requirements and Payroll Processes*

Note: Instruction on payroll processes is allowable; however, time spent filling out payroll paperwork does not count toward the required work readiness training hours. 

The Board must specify the curriculum used to deliver Work Readiness Training and provide this information as a part of the SEAL – 1: Program DescriptionMS Word. The Board must provide the training using instructional approaches that meet each VR participant's educational and disability needs. All training materials must be available in a format that is appropriate to the VR participant's needs, including regular print, large print, or Braille, and must be provided in the VR participant's preferred language. VR staff can assist in ensuring all materials and media used in the training are accessible to the VR participants who have accessibility needs.

Work Readiness trainers are responsible for maintaining attendance records, curriculum, lesson plans, and documentation as proof that required training topics were completed. All curricula and attendance records must be available for review by VR staff upon request. Boards must allow VR staff to observe and support students participating in the work readiness training. 
Boards must ensure that students completing Work Readiness Training are offered a worksite placement.

1.5.4 Worksite Placement

After completing the Work Readiness Training, the VR participant will be assigned to a worksite that has been selected by the Board or the Board's contractor. Boards must develop a variety of worksite placements and consider accessibility and location when developing worksites. 

Boards are responsible for developing worksite placements that are available for a minimum of five weeks in duration. Boards must collaborate with VR staff to identify appropriate work placements for each VR participant, as well as accommodations that will be needed at a particular worksite. Boards are responsible for notifying the VR counselor, the VR participant, and the VR participant's parents or guardian of the VR participant's worksite placement at least one week before the participant’s first workday to allow the participant time to prepare for the job.

When a Board subcontracts SEAL functions to a third party, a VR participant cannot be placed in a worksite that is within the subcontractor's organization. VR participants must be placed within public or private employers outside of TWC, the Board, and any subcontractor organizations.  VR participants cannot be placed at a business owned or operated by family members.

Should an employer require drug screening and/or background checks, the Board or its subcontractor must notify the VR counselor one week in advance. The Board must pay for the cost when necessary (the cost of the drug screening and/or background check is factored into the worksite placement deliverable).

VR participants cannot work over forty hours per week. The hourly wage must also comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act. Boards can negotiate the number of hours per week of work available for each VR participant with identified employers. All Texas labor laws apply and must be followed. For more information, visit the Texas Child Labor Law website.

VR participant wages must be paid timely. Boards may deduct other costs associated with payroll, such as federal income tax withholding, Federal Insurance Contributions Act expenses, workers' compensation insurance, and any fees associated with payroll processing. Boards must set an hourly wage rate for the paid work experience component that is consistent with or based on the hourly wage the Board uses for paid work experience under the WIOA Title I formula youth program.

Boards are required to abide by the following roles and responsibilities for worksite development and collaboration: 

Board and Board Contract Staff

VR Staff

Boards must ensure that students who complete Work Readiness Training are offered a worksite placement.

VR staff must ensure that VR participants are made aware of the expectations for SEAL worksite placements, including worksite expectations and the program time commitment.

Develop worksite placements that are available for a minimum of five weeks in duration.

Share any relevant business contacts with the Board and its contract staff to supplement Board’s worksite development efforts.

Identify, recruit, and develop employment opportunities and worksites in  the public and private sectors and target high-growth occupations, skilled trades and crafts, and other high-demand occupations in the local workforce development area.

Identify, recruit, and develop referrals for the SEAL program participants.

 Orient the employer supervisor and/or manager of the SEAL worksite of their responsibilities, which include:

  • modeling expectations;
  • giving clear, detailed, and repeated directions;
  • communicating expectations for job performance, behavior, and social interactions;
  • explaining consequences for inappropriate behavior;
  • discussing progress and improvements in performance with both the VR participant and contractor;
  • teaching skills needed for successful job performance; and
  • communicating regularly with both the VR participant and the Board.

Assist the Board in providing disability awareness presentations, worksite analysis, or other forms of assistance to support the Board in working with employers to identify needed VR participant accommodations.

Review SEAL – 2: Referral FormMS Word and develop appropriate worksite placements that align with VR participant’s interests, abilities, capabilities, preferences, and proximity to home.

Submit SEAL – 2: Referral FormMS Word and provide detailed information regarding VR participant’s interests, abilities, capabilities, preferences, and location.

Notify the VR counselor, the VR participant, and the VR participant's parents or guardian of the VR participant's worksite placement at least one week before the first day of work experience.

Coordinate any relevant support services, including but not limited to:

  • American Sign Language interpreters or language translation services;
  • screen reader or screen magnification software;
  • other assistive devices and equipment needed as an auxiliary aid for a student to access or participate in SEAL; and
  • Work Experience trainers to provide on-site individual or group training to ensure that the VR participants receive needed training and meet the employer's expectations.

Provide VR participants a point of contact to utilize in the event of any concerns about the placement

Provide VR participants information regarding SEAL program guidelines and expectations.

Responsible for picking up and processing all VR participant timesheets.

May assist with timesheets.

Encourage employers to continue serving as SEAL program partners, and to participate in planning, organization, recruitment, and possible retention of employment opportunities for students with disabilities.

Encourage employers to continue serving as SEAL program partners and to participate in planning, organization, recruitment, and possible retention of employment opportunities for students with disabilities.

1.5.5 Worksite Monitoring, Oversight

Boards will provide ongoing worksite monitoring to ensure the VR participant is successful at the job and address any issues. Boards will be responsible for consistently informing VR staff about VR participant progress and/or issues, while collaborating with the VR staff to resolve worksite issues or make needed changes. Boards will be responsible for conducting at least one monitoring visit for each VR participant. If appropriate, monitoring visits may be conducted electronically.

Monitoring is defined as observing the VR participant work at the placement site. The monitoring visit must be documented on the SEAL – 5: Worksite Monitoring FormMS Word and include observations and documentation of interaction with the student, employer, and/or work experience trainer. Boards cannot bill for the monitoring deliverable if the visit was not conducted during a time that the VR participant received wages. Wage documentation must indicate that the student was present at the worksite during the monitoring visit. When a student’s first placement ends and they are re-placed, a second monitoring must be conducted at the new place of business.

1.5.6 Work Experience Training and Interpreter Services

VR counselors can arrange and purchase support goods or services for VR participants, including the purchase of work experience training services. These services are provided by an approved work experience trainer when a VR participant needs more training and support than is occurring at the worksite.

work experience training may include:

  • teaching skills;
  • reinforcing skills; and
  • natural supports, accommodations, and/or compensatory techniques to increase the VR participant's independence and ability to meet the Work Experience site's expectations.

Work experience training occurs after Worksite Placement has been secured. Work experience training can only be authorized by VR staff and is based on the amount of assistance and/or supervision the VR participant will need to meet the job expectations. The work experience trainer will gradually reduce the time spent with the VR participant at the worksite as the VR participant becomes better adjusted, more independent, and no longer needs training support.

VR staff may arrange and purchase interpreter services as needed for VR participants. An interpreter conveys messages between individuals without contributing to the dialogue.

Interpreter services are provided by qualified interpreters and include:

  • sign language and oral interpretation for VR participants who are deaf or hard of hearing; and
  • tactile interpretation for VR participants who are deafblind.

Board or contractor staff are responsible for contacting VR staff at least one week in advance to request an interpreter or Work Experience trainer to support a student's placement at the worksite. VR staff must agree that a Work Experience trainer or interpreter is necessary for the student, based on the student's support needs, before arranging the service. The duration of this service will be based on the VR participant’s unique needs and job duties. It is expected this service may taper off as the VR participant learns the duties.

The VR participant must work a minimum of four hours a week to constitute one week of work. This minimum is set to allow flexibility for students with the most significant disabilities to participate in the program. Boards should expect that most VR participants will be able to work substantially more hours than the minimum.

1.5.7 Worksite Retention

VR participants must complete at least five weeks of paid work experience to qualify as successful completion of the program and for the Board to receive payment for the retention deliverable. Activities that help ensure worksite retention include providing advance notice of worksite placement, conducting monitoring visit(s), maintaining communication with the VR participant and worksite supervisor, and coordinating with VR staff to address any employer or VR participant needs. To meet the requirements for the Worksite Retention deliverable, the Board must verify that the VR participant worked a minimum of four hours per week and a minimum of twenty hours over the five-week placement duration. The Boards must submit supporting documentation that includes hours worked, start/end date of worksite placement, and wages.

1.5.8 Termination of Service Delivery

If a VR participant's behavior is a concern, Boards must address the behavior before termination because of the behavior. If behaviors are harmful to the VR participant or others, appropriate actions must be made to ensure that all parties remain safe.

Reasons for terminating services based on behavior may include:

  • behaviors dangerous to oneself or others;
  • serious infraction of the employer's rules;
  • frequent unexcused absenteeism;
  • frequent unexcused tardiness; or
  • lack of cooperation on assigned tasks.

Every effort must be made to inform the VR counselor before the termination of SEAL services. When the VR counselor cannot be informed before termination, the VR counselor must be informed in writing within one workday after termination. The Board must maintain documentation that the VR counselor was informed of termination. If the VR participant is terminated from the position for reasons outside of the VR participant’s control, the Board will be responsible for developing a new worksite placement for the VR participant. The Board cannot bill for a secondary placement deliverable if a new worksite placement is necessary. Please consult with the VR counselor regarding secondary placement and supports needed (if applicable).
