Current Narrative:

ICBVI has the following cooperative agreements:


Idaho Educational Services for the Deaf and Blind (IESDB): This agreement outlines how the two agencies will coordinate referrals, data sharing, services and communication to benefit the transition of students with blindness and visual impairments throughout the state.

Idaho Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (IDVR): This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)  establishes guidelines and policies to delineate the services both agencies will provide to individuals with disabilities. Furthermore, this agreement enhances cooperation and collaboration between the two agencies, improves inter-agency communication, and establishes staff cross-training opportunities.

Tribal VR (Nez Perce Tribe, Coeur d’Alene Tribe, Shoshone/Bannock Tribe, and Shoshone/Paiute Tribe): ICBVI, along with IDVR entered into one collaborative cooperative agreement with three of the four federally funded Tribal VR programs in the state, while also maintaining a single cooperative agreement with the fourth Tribal VR program. These revised cooperative agreements include the WIOA requirements, specifically to include address transition services to students and youth with disabilities.

State Department of Education (SDE): ICBVI, along with IDVR and the Idaho SDE established and approved a Memorandum of Understanding for Transition Services for Students with Disabilities, which includes the provision of Pre- Employment Transition Services, and clarifies the roles and responsibilities of each agency.
