Resources for Out-of-School Youth


Florida has been working diligently with other out-of-school youth (OSY) consortium states to address the needs of eligible secondary-aged migrant OSY.

NEW TRAINING (posted 6-9-17)
June 2017 FL ID&R Office eTA - OSY Learning Plan (PowerPoint presentation in Adobe Connect)

We are excited to present an instructional webinar that provides guidance on how to use the OSY Learning Plan. A draft version of this resource was piloted by our own MEP staff in Summer 2016.

The 10-minute recorded webinar is self-guided and is meant to provide guidance specifically on the Student Learning Plan Training Guide. MEP staff that take the training should download a copy of the training guide before starting the webinar. Links to the training guide and plans are below.

Graduation and Outcomes for Success for OSY (GOSOSY)

District MEPs are strongly encouraged to complete a FMEP OSY Profile for each out-of-school youth after completing a COE. Profiles should be completed annually.

2017-18 Out-of-School Youth Profile/Survey & Instructions (English Version) - Revised July 2017

The ID&R Office created an OSY Educational Outcomes Chart (EOC) - adapted from consortium materials. The OSY EOC is a user-friendly, practical tool designed to help OSY service providers create academic and support services plans that best suits the needs of the OSY they serve even if they are only residing in a district for a brief period.

Educational Resources Developed by Florida Districts

Alachua Multi-County
Alachua Multi-County OSY Advocate, Johnny Rolfes, has created a series of mini-lessons in Spanish and English. We want to thank Johnny and the staff at AMC for sharing these tools, which can be adapted to work in other FL districts. Each title will open a zipped file that contains a mini-lesson and supporting documents.

The list of available mini-lessons was revised on September 15, 2014.

Polk County MEP
Check out a mini-lesson that Polk uses with their welcome bags for OSYs. It is basic but it has been useful in Polk county.
