Occupational Course of Study
program is designed to provide students with disabilities with a sound
foundation in preparation for adult living. Through participation in a
vocationally oriented curriculum and in relevant work experiences,
students learn skills necessary to enter the world of work, retain
employment, and seek other employment throughout their adult lives.
Occupational Course of Study is designed to assist high school students
who are not participating in the Standard Course of Study, as
determined by the IEP Team.
It consists of three components:
- Functional Curriculum
- Job Training
- Work Experience
addresses the aptitudes that are necessary for successful adult living
and employment. Students follow an occupational pathway that emphasizes
integration into the working community after high school graduation.
