School to Work

School to Work (S2W)

Practicing Program

Students gain both classroom experience and practical experience in the School to Work program. In the classroom, they gain an understanding of workplace expectations, behaviors, understand the use of math and money, explore career options and work with community agencies to better understand supports available. In addition, this program provides work-based learning and individual job coaching through our community partners. Our business partners are essential in providing real life work-based learning opportunities for students as they prepare to enter the workforce.
