Job Training EAST

Job Training EAST

Job Training provides a work environment where students can explore a variety of careers while learning soft skills in a community job site.  This elective course offers half and full day work experience for students who are ready to practice their employability skills at a community job site alongside paid employees.  Students who work a full day have met all  academic requirements. 
Students work at different job sites throughout the school year.  These job sites are determined by the employer’s needs and students’ age  appropriate transition assessments.
