Our Vocational Department consists of two cross-categorial classrooms. The goal is to provide an intensive and individualized program that prepares individuals for post-school life. One of the classrooms offers a transitional program with a hidden curriculum utilizing the community and job training experiences. This intensive learning program is achieved through support services, behavioral programs, extra-curricular activities, and 1:5 ration of qualified faculty.
Reading, math, living skills, vocational skills, health/nutrition, and behavioral goals are addressed. A variety of reading activities are designed using practical, real-life situations. This curriculum consists of reading recipes, shopping lists, menus, job vocabulary, safety, community and survival words. Math activities create real and practical applications such as coin identification/values, budgets, consumer education and checking.
