TO: WIB Directors; WIB Chairpersons; Grant Recipients

FROM: Lorna Joseph, Director of Program Support

SUBJECT: Additional Clarification on Recording of Skill Attainment Goals

America's Workforce Network

Background:  Questions have been raised about whether goals set for younger youth can remain open for up to one year, despite whether or not the individual exited before the year was up.  We have consulted with the U.S. Department of Labor on the issue and are issuing this clarification.

Policy:  The following procedures shall be followed by all areas in the recording of skill attainment goals.

The younger youth skill attainment rate is unlike other measures in that it is not exit based.  It must be remembered though, that the attainment of any of the skill goals set must happen while the youth is active in services.  The provision that the failure be recorded in the quarter one year from the quarter in which the goal was originally set applies to those participants active in the program.  Persons who exit services prior to completing set goals must have the failures recorded at the time of exit and not recorded at a later date.

A system edit will be developed to ensure this process is being followed.

Any questions on this issue should be addressed to Cynthia Cyr or Stephen Litke at (860) 263-6590.
