The Council involves itself in various surveys and needs assessments. Some of these efforts are accomplished independently, and others collaboratively with IDVR. Some Council interests parallel Vocational Rehabilitation’s program evaluation activities, so joint research efforts are conducted. Employer attitudes, client satisfaction and staff perceptions of IDVR are a few of the inquiries that have been conducted.

The Council prepares and submits an annual report on the status of Vocational Rehabilitation programs in Idaho, and makes that report available to the public.
Council members are volunteers appointed by the State Board of Education for three year terms. The Council is comprised of representatives from the following groups:
- Workforce Development Council
- Special Education, Department of Education
- Current or former recipients of services from IDVR
- Business, Industry and Labor
- Disability Advocacy Groups
- Community Rehabilitation Programs
- The Client Assistance Program
- Idaho Parents Unlimited

The majority of Council members are individuals with disabilities, and diversity is valued. Nominations are accepted at any time;
Service on the Council provides a unique opportunity to engage in the dialogue on Vocational Rehabilitation services at the state level.
State & Strategic Plans
