Job Training Coordination (JTC)

Special needs students who enroll in the Mechanical and Maintenance Training program will work with a qualified, experienced instructor in a lab equipped for learning the basics for mechanical-related careers.  They will have the opportunity to use machines and tools required for future employment.  

Academics will be taught by a qualified intervention specialist in a resource room and at a level that will enable students to be successful academically.  Students will be completing 2 credits each in English and Math and 1 credit each in science and government/economics.  They will also be learning employability skills during the two-year program.  

Special needs students in the Hospitality and Tourism program will focus on basic culinary, hospitality, and employability skills taught by a experienced culinary instructor.  They will be working in a functioning restaurant-style kitchen with attached classroom and restaurant facility while they learn basic cooking and food safety skills.  Students may also assist in the Career Center's restaurant.
