JEA JR/SR HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM

 
General Information
Description of ServiceServes students ages 12 through 21 who present a range of disabilities and require intensive support. Classroom instruction incorporates the Common Core Learning Standards, and major emphasis is on developing life skills so students may be successfully placed in a supportive work environment upon graduation. A variety of training opportunities for supportive employment including a comprehensive Work Activities Center is available. Many of the students participate in travel training to assist them in independent ambulation within the community. Most students participate in community-based vocational sites and receive training by working with non-disabled individuals. The program’s team approach brings together the related service staff, program psychologists, and social workers who work in concert with the classroom staff to maximize each child’s potential. The services of a consulting psychiatrist are available for those developmentally disabled students who also have psychiatric needs. The highest priorities within this program are to help students to develop functional and independent living skills for daily living activities and prepare for success in the New York State Alternate Assessments.
