Emerging Program

Skills for Adult Independent Living (SAIL)

Each student has individual goals developed by a team and identified in an Individual Education Program (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, non-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.

  • Classroom:  Focus on daily living skills, functional academics, fitness, self-care, health, and social skills
  • Community Experience:  Explore recreation/leisure opportunities, community safety, shopping and money skills
  • Work Experience:  Participate in a variety of employment opportunities to gain universal work skills
