Practicing Program

School to Work

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