Job Training Coordination (JTC) NEW!

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.

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.
