Work Based Learning:
Special Education Teacher/ Work Transition Coordinator
Students who have an an IEP are eligible for the Work-based Learning program. The program includes multiple components.
School-to-Work Job Placements:
Students will have the opportunity to work in a nonpaid job at school or in the community, earning credit and learning basic job skills: going to work on time, calling when you will be absent, following directions, and asking for help. Student’s interests will be considered in obtaining a job site, but there is no guarantee that a placement will be available in their area of interest. If this is the case, they will need to accept one of the available placements. Types of placements that students have held in the past include: office/clerical, custodial, retail, food preparation, activities with senior citizens, and day care assistant. Job placements are limited to one (1) class period per semester. If you schedule a job placement you must also take the seminar.
Because job safety is a high priority for students enrolled in job placements, the school will only make placements in jobs and at job sites that meet state and federal safety requirements in jobs and at job sites that meet state and federal safety requirements for minors, even when the student has reached the age of eighteen (18).
