Career Education

Career Education and The Internship Program

Job Sampling, Structured Learning Experiences and/or Career Internships are designed specifically for students in order to support their post-secondary goals as these relate to job skills and career interests.

Students explore career options and develop transferable job skills through real-life work experiences in various locations/businesses within the community. In addition, students may choose to take classes at a local college if they are eligible.

Examples of some of the district's cooperating job sites are elementary and middle schools, graphic design businesses, neighboring hospitals and doctor offices, physical therapy offices, law offices, automotive shops, car dealers, private electricians, public libraries, local shops, grocery stores, restaurants, department stores and beauty salons.

A Transition Coordinator identifies, accesses and oversees placements while a Job Coach monitors student progress and employs interventions that assist students to learn assigned tasks, and to develop and demonstrate interpersonal skills and behaviors that fit with workplace norms.

Parents and students who are interested in learning more about these career education opportunities, should contact the student’s Child Study Team Case Manager.
