SKILLS FOR ADULT INDEPENDENT LIVING (SAIL)

Emerging Program

Each student has individual goals developed by a team and identified in an Individual Educational Plan (IEP). Educational activities focus on employment and job training, community involvement, mobility, safety, daily living skills, academics, health, recreation, leisure and social communication skills.

Ingham ISD partners with local businesses and organizations to expand student skills and provide job training through volunteer, nonpaid and/or paid positions. This further enhances the learning that happens in the classroom. The SAIL program also facilitates connections to agencies and community resources that can provide support services.
